Ledge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Built in the early 1900s, the Ledge Trail is a loop that connects to the St. Sauveur Trail and provides the shortest way up the 679-foot wooded summit of St. Sauveur Mountain. It also provides a less strenuous approach to the views of Valley Peak than the shorter but steeper Valley Peak Trail.

From the Ledge Trailhead, go left over a wooden bridge and take a sharp left along a rock face. Climb gradually up stone steps to a junction at 0.2 mile. Head right (southeast) toward St. Sauveur Mountain. The trail climbs fairly steeply up a wooded mountainside here with rocks and roots along the way. Follow the blue blazes along the rocky ledges that the trail is named after. When the trail begins to curve left (north), views of the fire tower on Beech Mountain are visible through the trees to the west."
