Cathedral Ledge is a MUST when visiting the area. With options to hike, bike, drive, or rock climb up, it’s truly an activity fit for all! Once at the top, there are trails you can continue to hike through, or you can walk to the outlook. This is completely safe, with fences guarding the perimeter of the ledge. With gorgeous views of the valley, and Echo Lake, it’s really a sight worth seeing.
