Not for the weak! Plenty of camping areas along the way. 3 of us backpacks up there taking our time and hammock camped. Source of water was endless if you have a filtration system.

Not a big fan of this one. This felt like a long walk in the woods. The woods are beautiful, but there is no “real” overlook. I did not get the sense of a “summit”. Lastly, Cunningham Falls was a little disappointing. I expected more. Plus, the fact that the falls is not technically part of the hike(it has its own parking lot) took away some of the experience to me.

Just near the AT museum there's a road to the right, old shippensburg rd where you follow that all the way to the end. There's some parking there where you meet to trail head.
The climb was a great steepish uphill to the top. Unfortunately, I had to turn around at the second rocks bc of a big black bear greeting me. That was fun! A copperhead was laying in some rocks at the top too so they are around. Beautiful hike what I could do though! Near the parking there's a turn to the AT also that walks by a river.

Our family did this a few moths ago. Great hike

Fantastic trail! Well marked and challenging but worth the views.

I've been on this section twice now, once in the winter time and just this past weekend in July. it's very rocky but pretty manageable. hiking boots aren't required but may be good idea. campsites on top of the ridge get breezy so something to block wind while you sleep is recommended. on your way out stop at the lumberjack restaurant not 5 miles from the trail parking, excellent food and nice staff

It was good not that great. but you will have couple of good views up there. for me its good experience because i climbed rock which is little bit challenging.

Starts off steep then levels out. Only went 20 min in then turned around.

Liked this trail a lot! Pretty challenging terrain with multiple hills, but also some good spots for running. Mostly shaded, and stretches along running water with pretty rhododendrons. Last bit was just an uphill grass walk for about a half of a mile, which wasn’t my favorite. But other than that good hike!

The hike had some awesome views and places to take a dip in the water! Had an overall enjoyable hike which took about 5 hours to complete. The end of the trail was a gradual incline with high grass and the top didn't have the cool view I was hoping for (unless I missed something). Would hike again.

Great hike! Cooler than staying in DC! Lots of boulders to climb!

Amazing hike. Lakeside / falls / ferns + rhododendron forests / bamboo / some nice views and chance to see some birds of prey. River crossing. Another beautiful falls section. Some evergreens. Really fun out and back - took me 5 hrs though the last uphill old forrest road end section could be skipped unless going to a car in north lot, Ended up being ~ 11 miles total. Pretty underrated - kinda stumbled upon it (much better than Kelly’s Run / Pinnacle trails across the river). Echoing others - bring bug spray. One of my favorites in eastern PA so far

I’m not sure why this trail is labeled moderate. I had a really hard time with all the rocks. You would have to be a super fit person with long legs to enjoy this trail.

Excellent trail. Waterfalls and streams alongside trail path. My dog and I had a blast. he’s passed out on the floor right now. Make sure to bring bug spray.

Very nice trail and not as difficult as the description sounds. However, I only walked from the Iron Masters Mansion and followed the AT to the point where the Sunset Rocks Trail begins. It was a steep ascent from that point to the view of the valley, but it was relatively short. I didn’t have time to do the full loop but looking forward to it some day. Almost walked into a rattlesnake at the top. He was busy sunning himself on the rocks so he never moved the whole time.

Mtn Laurel is in full bloom June 7. Rhododendron are still some days away.

Pleasant hike, bit of a climb early on, nothing terrible, rocky across the ridge, easy descent on Susquehanna trail

Waterfalls along the trail and the grand vista at Worlds End makes this moderate hike memorable.

Definitely closer to hard than moderate. We stayed on the trail until we hit the back part of the loop (Susquehanna trail). This is a great hike that offers a lot of challenging aspects. Parking at the lot made accessing the trail very easy. The noise of the highway was present the entire hike, but after a while you block it out.

Very challenging hike! Fun rock scrambling over the boulders and great views. Cool site at the halfway point of the AT. Really enjoyable

Probably one of the best hikes for the area!! Crossing the road to get to the falls was a little precarious and some of the trail has stretches that run alongside the road unfortunately. It did have some fun challenges though and wolf rock was pretty cool to see! Definitely recommend doing it counterclockwise. I did also catch a woodpecker in action!!

Great time with Great Friends. Kind of busy with lot of Boy scouting cubbies but other then that it was okay.. Pretty rocky so don't wear your slippery shoes.

Beautiful and challenging

This park is truly beautiful. Lots of water features, interesting terrain. My only complaint is that some of these trails are very close to roads. While the roads may not be heavily trafficked, you still don’t feel like you are truly “in nature.” Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed hiking here and would definitely come back again in the summer when the trees are in full bloom. We started at the Worlds End trailhead next to the Park Office, took LT to Pioneer Road, Double Run Nature Trail, took the Link Trail southbound, up to the Loyalsock Canyon Vista where we stopped for lunch and then finished the LT loop back to the start.

My hike was starting at Michaux Rd, then hiking NE up to Sunset Rocks, then down to the AT and on to Pine Grove Furnace. Very narrow ridgetop with heavily bouldered trail. Trailhead at Michaux Rd was hard to find ...it looks like a driveway..so here are some tips: Coming from Rt 233 turn on Michaux Rd...look for address post #111...on right. Baby blue color trail blazes are on left and right side of Michaux Rd to alert you mark you are near to trail. Follow baby blue blazes at #111 on the RIGHT side to the beginning of the rock outcrops almost immediately. If you like rocks, this is it.

Nice hike, I hit this after work sometimes in the spring/summer. A bit of rock scrambling here and there so be prepared to help your dog if you take it.

Views arent bad too.
