Diana’s Bath, Champney Falls, Cathedral Ledge - Easy Hike


Just a few photos of some short hikes on a weekday. Spent the day at some mellow waterfalls and at the top of Cathedral Ledge. The trail to Diana’s Bath falls is wide, well-maintained and easy. I can see why this spot attracts many families with small children. 









Afterwards I drove to the top of Cathedral Ledge.  During the winter season, this gate is locked. At the top is a parking lot and a short walk to fenced views above climbing route finishes. 







Chatted a bit with Tom Sawyer who was belaying
Mike Cummins up the route called “Refuse”.  

From the lookout point with Whitehorse Ledge,
Echo Lake and The White Mountain Hotel & Resort

On my way home I stopped off at the Champney Falls trailhead on the Kancamagus Highway. At the loop junction I took the right, up along the stone stairs. Then left onto the loop along the water. The hike up to the top of the loop trail was easy and views along and down the loop trail was fantastic! I never have, but hope to ice climb here.
