Good trail and easy to access. We went on one of the first warm weekends of the year and the parking lot was packed. Be ready to have lots of company on the trails. It was heavily used by mountain bikers and people with pups. (We had our two pups leashed and all but one dog we passed was also leashed.) We also had our two year old with us and she was able to hike with us (with assistance of course.)

The terrain isn’t too rough but given the length of the hike, it can be challenging. The views make it worth it

Great hiking trail, some small inclines but
moderate enough for beginners. Gives a great view of the Delaware River!

Beautiful scenery and good trails with elevation gain/loss.

Great reward at the lookout. We parked in the first parking lot but could have cut the hike in half if we parked in the second lot in. Use gps. No sign for Tank Hollow which is a good thing because its kind of a secret gem and not a lot of people. Took us 45 mins each way.

Very rewarding day hike with great views, ponds, streams and a beautiful waterfall.

Great scenic route definitely take the Appalachian Trail going up.. you can do Loop or stay on the AT...2nd time doing it...Added 3 miles of the AT to the Gas Line Cut out.

There are several trails and you can loose your way pretty easily. But if you follow the river you will find your way back eventually. Very pretty. A lot of foot/bike traffic.

looking for big foot with kids, you will see lots of natural sites for story telling and adventure making.

Woke up at 2am to catch the sunrise, totally worth it! The hike up was challenging due to the snow but the view at the top was well worth it. The sunrise slowly turned the perfect view of mt minsi to a golden red making for a great photo op, highly reccomend this mountain.

Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

We nailed it and went during the worst weather ever! but this trail is sheltered somewhat and the rain/fog didn't effect us much! Made the colors pop in our pictures too :) Eat at the Rickett's Glenn Hotel...YUMMO! Get the potato thing - it was delicious!

Just hiked this trail with my buddy yesterday (3/14/2018)-(3/15/2018) and man it was a tough one for sure. We planned on camping two nights but there was a lot more snow on the ground than we anticipated. The snow averaged anywhere from 5-9 inches throughout the trail. Wednesday we walked in roughly 5 miles and camped by the Iron Bridge after parking off of 220. There were three campsites and they were all really nice with stone fire pits! We woke up pretty cold to the weather in the teens and the wind blowing which we were expecting but once we got hiking we were fine. We made great time along the LT even in the snow because it was really well marked with blazes on a tree almost every 10 feet. It was a little slippery at times but were were prepared so we had little issues. We made it to the visitor center in worlds end state park quite swiftly around 2pm after starting our hike around 9:30am. We decided we didn't want to stay another night on the trail so we skipped where we were going to camp and hustled back to the car. The link trail was nice but there wasn't a whole lot to look at other than the vista in the very beginning. The link was only marked maybe every 30 yards and was a bit hard to navigate especially in the snow so this is why I have given the loop 4 stars. I would definitely hike the LT again but as far as the link goes I don't think I would hike that section again. I hope this review is helpful!!!

Love this trail! Just for clarity, according to the NPS website, it is only the Buchanan Spur that is closed for the nesting Falcons; the rest of the trail is open.

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

As of February 23, 2018 the NPS has closed Cliff Trail to protect nesting Falcons. It is expected to reopen in July or August.

Wear hiking shoes, it’s rocky in many places. Beautiful lookouts over the river in the first 10 minutes of the hike. Staying left on the trail and taking it clockwise will take you along the high portion of the trail first and on the way back, following the loop, takes you lower along the river.

Trail was a little hard to find but the view was amazing!

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

In Aug 2016, we camped here with our family of ten and hiked over 15 mi in this park. The waterfall trail is amazing. Steep. Slippery. And gorgeous.

Beautiful hike after an overnight 6 inch snowfall. Great views, tranquil Eureka creek crossing, and beautiful rhododendrons. Moderate hike which took about 3 hours with multiple stops to admire views and take pictures. We took the fire road back due to slippery snow covered rocks.

Nice campsites along Sones Pond and Loyalsock River. Recommend the Loyalsock-Link Trail loop

Great view at Hemlock Lake. But signs are not clear since then. We followed the false trail when we wanted to leave the lake and came back to the falls.

This is easy training hike for me. I am from car and back under 1 hour. Nice mixed terrain.

Climbed Mt. Minsi yesterday. Great hike with what others have already described as... "...great views of the Delaware River and Mount Tammany!". It'll take around 3 hrs start to finish is definitely icy in spots this time of year.. Easy trail "overall".. Two thumbs up!

Beautiful trail! Definitely would say this was moderate NOT easy. A large portion of the trail is unmarked and very rocky with lots of tree roots, etc. I stupidly started at the end of the trail and worked my way to the beginning. A large portion of it was uphill and there was parts that were a little strenuous. My dog had a blast but I wouldn’t recommend bringing small children unless your only looking at the overlook. If I brought my kid, they’d be complaining that their legs hurt the whole time.

Took this trail today, beautiful day. Once up the initial incline there are some beautiful views. I read this trail as being 5 plus miles round trip. We were so intune with the beautiful weather and views that we didn’t realize right before the knob that we had gone 5 miles already. BE ADVISED the full loop is 10 plus miles. Well I got a full workout today. Great trail in the winter highly recommend.
