Cathedral Ledge is a nice place to stop when in the North Conway area of New Hampshire. Great view - great scenery.

Well worth the few minutes to drive up to the top of Cathedral Ledge from our hotel in North Conway, fantastic views from the top. Really admire the skill of the climbers, appearing at the top, but amazed at the stupidity of the cyclist we...More

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.

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!
