Great entry level Winter hike. Took this hike for the first time ever. (Good any season but busy I bet in the summer). Not sure why I have never done it before it’s great. This is our first year winter hiking so after our first real snow of the season we wanted to kick off the winter hiking. This one seemed like a safe place to start winter hiking- and it is. It would be a Great spot to snowshoe for the first time even if you just go around Echo Lake (about a mile- flat and pretty)
Didn’t need our snowshoes this time (not enough snow) just our regular crampons and hiking poles.
Added the hike Bryce Path to make it to the top of Cathedral Ledge. This is a must to get the view!
Pretty easy hike even with the snow and slippery leave areas. Needed the crampons in the few steeper areas. These would not be considered steep in the summer but the snow added to our need for careful steps in those areas. Very doable though. Trail is well marked.
Amazing to get to the top of Cathedral Ledge and not find any people. Road Up is closed in the winter)
Great views from the Ledge of North Conway area and Cranmore Ski Mountain....and even the mile around Echo Lake at the beginning is pretty.

nice walk around the pond then into the wood, then a very steep climb up with a small rest and more up. we didn't make the second up because we started later afternoon and we're loosing light. it was very challenging to us but great. only reason we gave it a four was because you have to pay to enter park and enter, but it wasn't enough to deter us.
