July 28, 2018 – New Hampshire – Cathedral Ledge State Park

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I stopped at Cathedral Ledge State Park in Bartlett, New Hampshire, technically part of Echo Lake State Park.  The Cathedral Lookout can be reached from a 1.7 mile hike, or a drive to the top of the mountain.  Cathedral Ledge State Park is one of the most popular rock climbing locations in New Hampshire.

It is always brightens my day when I accidentally find a new adventure.  Today was one of those days when I spotted the sign for Cathedral Ledge State Park and decided to check it out.  Spoiled with the internet I did a quick review and off we went.  I guess we cheated a bit on this adventure as I decided to drive to the Lookout.  After a short drive to the top we then ventured to two separate viewing areas where we enjoyed sweeping views of North Conway and the surrounding mountains.  We sat in the shade for a bit, and chatting with other visitors quite interested in Shadow and  Wilma.  I was lucky again to have some visitors volunteer to take a family photo.  We enjoyed seeing the views, however this location was a little warm for the pups so we did not stay long at the Ledge (Rating:  3).
