North Conway offers hiking in the White Mountain National Forest. This area is a major rock climbing destination particularly at Cathedral Ledge in Echo Lake State Park. The 500-foot (150 m) cliff overlooks Echo Lake and North Conway from the west. Unlike nearby White Horse Ledge, another rock climbing site, Cathedral Ledge has an automobile road to the summit, which provides fine views of the Saco River Valley.
In late September through early October, tourists arrive to see the autumn colors on the surrounding mountains and forests. The Conway Scenic Railroad features train rides that leave from the village’s Victorian station at Schoular’s Park. In the winter, the village is the nighttime destination for skiers visiting the area resorts, including North Conway’s own Cranmore Mountain as well as nearby Attitash Resort, Black Mountain and Wildcat Mountain.
In the Summer the Saco River becomes a haven for the outdoor enthusiasts. Canoes, kayaks and tubers fill the river to enjoy the beauty of nature.
