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.

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.

Saw a couple of deer.

it was first hike in very long time and completed it it in snow which made it more challenging. Shared company with my best friend made it a five star. :)

Great trail. Falls were great but would be better with more recent rain.

Me and my boyfriend and dog just finished the first half of this trail from the trailhead at Route 87 to Dry Run Road (around 30 miles so half). This trail is very difficult in many areas and has a lot A LOT of mild to difficult stream crossings and much elevation change in short distances. Even for regular backpackers like us we only accomplished 15 miles in the first day and we started at 9 am. I also want to clarify the we carried a backpacking GPS for mileage and the mile markers on the trail and in the Loyalsock Trail Guide are not accurate. We noticed this in the first 10 miles. It is disheartening and should be fixed. Having said that we will return and finish the other half soon. Very intense trail in central PA! Not for the weak willed!
