Within close proximity to North Conway, Cathedral Ledge is scenic at any time of year.

During spring, summer and fall there is a road that allows you to drive to the top of Cathedral Ledge. In winter the road is closed off to vehicles so reaching the top requires a 1.7 mile hike. Once at the top, there is a fenced in lookout with a 180 degree view of North Conway and the surrounding mountains. There is also a gorgeous aerial view of Echo Lake. 

Cathedral Ledge also has a plethora of rock climbing trails that you find people utilizing during all seasons. If you are in North Conway and want to experience a stunning view, Cathedral View is the place to go!
