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.

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!

Spectacular views makes the moderate hike up there. The Rock Garden is just across from the Vista. We day-hike this trail starting from creek at World's End following the banks of the creek. You will stay on the LT/Link Loop Yellow Trail until you come to an intersection and turn right (Blue) this a nice even trail. You will ascend to Canyon Vista.

We just hiked this trail yesterday (4/13/14) and it was gorgeous. This is one of my favorite day hikes. It has plenty of difficult spots, but none of them are so lengthy that you are wiped out after. This trail gives you everything. There are great views throughout the hike including vistas, rock formations, streams, and the Loyalsock creek which included a few waterfalls at this time of year.

Went in March so still plenty of ice and snow on the trail. Beautiful view from the top but relied heavily on my walking stick to make it back down in all the snow. Saw two other hikers on the trail. Will look forward to going back in the summertime.
