Stunning view of the landscape in North Conway, and some very nice hikes and short trails giving options to see more of the area. Beware of climbers!

Started the day here. Incredible views but stay back. Quite a drop. They don't call it Cathedral Ledge for nothing. It has a chain link fence around part of it but there is an open side where rock climbers repel down it.

Just a short drive up to the top, then a short walk gives dramatic views of surrounding valley and mountains. Fun to explore too.

Short walk to an amazing view. My husband and I visited last week and enjoyed the site. I was able to take several gorgeous photos.

If you are nearby worth a quick trip. Nice views of area. Some hike up or you can drive to top. We drove! Only a few steps from car

Cathedral Ledge offers great views of echo lake and Conway. A short walk when you drive to the top, so it is accessible for everyone Great place to take pictures!

10 of us went for an easy walk and great views. Both older and younger family members were able to enjoy the walk. Don't miss the views!

Lived up there for 20+ years. The only gate there is when they close the road from the winter months to when the snow is gone in the spring. You can pretty much access the top any time the gate is not closed.

The fenced area is about 50ft... but there is a section to the left of this area that is not! That area is very dangerous because one wrong step, it down to the bottom!
