Worlds End State Park is in a narrow S-shaped valley of the Loyalsock Creek just south of Forksville, Sullivan County. Loyalsock Canyon Vista, reached via Mineral Spring and Cold Run roads, provides outstanding views, especially during fall foliage.

Who writes the descriptions of these trails? Loyalsock is a 59.2 mile trail, point to point. There is a loop option that is 22.9 miles. I have done the entire loop and about 15-20 miles of the thru hike on top of that, spent 6 nights and 7 days exploring the trail. It's absolutely gorgeous. They have so many primitive campsite setups with awesome fire pits and seats made out of rocks or stones.

So many different terrains it's unbelievable. Waterfalls, rivers, ponds, mossy areas, piney areas! This hike will kick your ass and take your breath away. Probably one of the best, most challenging options in the entire tri-state area. I would have gone crazy this summer had I not found this hike, as I am from the Canadian Rockies, and really missed the satisfaction of conquering mountains, and solitude the forest offers.

Beautiful fall hike. A good mix of flat and uphill terrain without being too exhausting. Gorgeous view from the top.

Started at the visitor center and used the Link Trail to meet up to main trail. Nice hike, nice view of the fall foliage. The climbs were not too bad but not for the new hiker.

I remember doing this hike years ago when I was a Girl Scout at nearby Camp Lycogis. It follows the Loyalsock Trail for a good section of the trail, which has been rerouted. When I researched this trail it was telling me it was less than 3 miles. Since the trail was rerouted it was about 4.75 miles out and back, not a loop. Many parts of the trail are headed straight up the mountain, so it can be rather strenuous. When I went the water flow was low, so there wasn't much to see at the falls. Be careful at the top, it can get slippery and a fall would likely be the end of you. Even if the water isn't flowing, it's still a beautiful hike. The trail is very well blazed.

World's End Park and Canyon Trail are beautiful. The trail was clearly marked and the vistas were amazing. We thought the trail was difficult at times. Rocky and lots of roots. It was worth it.

Trail was not well maintained but marked exceptionally well. The view at the top was beautiful. The trail went through groups of rocks that was very cool. At the end it is a beautiful walk along the creek. Great hike!

Wow what spectacular views! Trail offers several ways in. It is slightly confusing on how to access the falls. I suggest staying along the stream and walking in from the bottom.
