It is a misty day so the visibility isn't great. From the top of cathedral Ledge I hiked down the Bryce Path, up to Whitehorse Ledge and back up Bryce Path. Rocky and steep and I enjoyed every minute of it. A misty day is perfect for hiking in the woods.

short but steep for most of it. The top offers some pretty awesome views.

It was slippery with the leaves on the ground. you have to be pretty fit to go up. The sense of accomplishment at the top is all worth it!

I really liked this trail. It's quick and fun and gets the blood flowing. Also, the view from the top is beautiful and peaceful. I took a quasi-nap before walking down the road back to my car. It took me a while to find the entrance. If you miss it (it's the very first trail on the road up on the left) then you'll most likely (like myself and many other people I noticed) will end up in front of a sign for Cathedral Ledge climbing that explains how to do the trail but is actually not where the trailhead is (if you notice a bunch of rock climbers you've most likely gone one sign too far). Hopefully this will help save at least one person 20 minutes of driving around looking for it

Tip to find most direct route to Cathedral Ledge. Enter from 1st trailhead on Cathedral Ledge Road. (Entering from other trail heads can be confusing, as others have reported) Follow yellow blazes, take right at Bryce Trail marker to the top. (If you look at the back of the sign you might think you are going the wrong direction. You're not. Continue to follow yellow on Bryce Trail.)

Approx. one hour hike with some steep segments. Good intro to steep hiking. Superb views at top. Pack a lunch and eat on rock ledge.

Not clearly marked. Great work out though. Not exactly easy but when you get up its an accomplishment. You can also take the auto road down. Great day!
