BEST SPOT TO FEEL LIKE SPIDER-MANWhen your moniker is “the Granite State,” you’re allowed to boast about the numerous walls of stone that play host to rock climbers. Cathedral Ledge doesn’t disappoint, with its many face and crack-and-corner climbs. The cliffs can be seen west of North Conway. Turn left after the Eastern Slope Inn on Main Street and follow the signs to the parking lot at the base of the ledge. (If you’d rather look than climb, visit nearby Echo Lake State Park. A scenic trail around the lake provides great views of the ledge, and an auto road can get you even closer to the action.)
