The trail and road were both literally total ice today and I would recommend wearing some kind of ice grip. I wore Yaktrax and it was easy and safe. Some nice snow right before the beautiful view.

Rain and then freezing temps meant the road and trail were pretty much an ice field the entire time, but we persisted and the view was worth it! Very easy to miss the turn off from the gravel road to the trail so have your app handy. Very flat- it good weather seems like it’d be a short, easy hike.

This is a pretty cool hike even during the winter. The "dull inner forest" noted by Shannon below is compensated by the snow :-) It was a pretty cold day so no snowshoes were needed. The trail is not marked, but it can be followed easily. The vistas as fab! Great as a daytrip for beginners from New Yorker too! Highly recommended!

Shout out to the person below me that said Glen Coco

Very pretty vistas but a lot of dull inner forest trail before getting there. Worth it if glen coco is frozen over and you’re in the area.

Easy Flat gravel trail, missed the turn to the overlook and over shot by 0.25 miles. Muddy once on the turnoff, but view is worth it. Is game land so wear some orange in season.

Quick easy in and out. Beautiful views.

Beautiful scenic overlook

The walk in was kind of boring... the first 3 quarters of it is just a flat state game lands road. Then the last quarter is a flat trail through the woods. Easy. Nice fall colors right now. The overlook is amazing!!! Just breathtaking. You can hear the rushing water of the river down below.

Nice short (3 mile) hike. Half of it is on gravel road. The wooded part is picturesque, but part of it had turned into a stream from flooding when we were there. The trail runs through state game lands, so if it is hunting season you might consider wearing bright colors. The vista overlook is great.

Not good for family hike with kids. Encounter Cooperhead and Rattlesnake on the trees and in between the rocks.

We hike with our kids (5 & 8) and none of us liked the hike. Most of the hike was a stone road that was 80% in the sun. Very boring. It's not a "hike", it's more of a walk in the sun.

Relatively flat hike to the overlook and the view is very nice.

Not a bad hike, flat but not real picturesque...

The initial walk down the gravel road is long and can be hot on a sunny, summer day because the road is open without much tree cover. The side trail to get to the cliff is easy to miss and unmarked but if using the hiking app it will mark where to turn. This next trail is beautiful. Its shaded and full of wild life. Towards the end of the trail it becomes rocky with large boulders, can be dangerous and difficult for young children or small dogs. The end of the path is worth the hike. Beautiful view of the gorge below and miles outward above the trees. Caution!!! Sunbathing on the edge of the cliff were two Copperhead snakes. My husband unbeknownst almost stepped on them. We actually have a picture of him standing just a small rock above the crease they were laying in. (Before we saw them of course!) Therefore, keep caution for snakes and tread carefully.

Torture. Easy elevation. Nightmare ride over never ending fist sized rocks ruined the whole experience

Beautiful View, had a bit of a hard time finding entry point without my phone and rattle snakes once we reached the lookout

Great view of the river from the top.

Very easy hike. The map will take you to an access road for hunting. You just hike down that for about a mile or so and then you'll see a path open up in the woods to your right. Then just take that path all the way to the overlook. It gets a bit tight and steep when you approach the overlook, so just be aware. Also, be wary of rattlesnakes. I saw a few sleeping under rocks on the overlook. You can also hear them while you're hiking on the path. Very very pretty view!!

A great short hike with a beautiful Vista view. World's End is one of my favorites and this vista is up there. I heard a lot of rattlesnakes but did not see any. I spent about an hour on the rocks mid day. Very easy and accessible hike for all skill levels.

I did this hike late last summer and the views were just stunning. In my opinion the best vista vantage point I've seen in Pennsylvania (Worlds End State Park, Canyon Vista is up there too) but I agree with the last reviewer. There are tons of rattlesnakes at the top. I brought my dog and was checking every few seconds. Even with being this watchful one snake snuck out about a foot behind my dog. Dog owners please beware of the real dangers of these snakes. The view is breathtaking and worth the hike but I will never be bringing my dog back there again.

Stunning view but too many rattle snakes to be able to relax. I would go back but will never take my pup there again.

I walked to far to the end of the gravel road and knew I missed the turn somewhere. We turned around and headed back to try to find the orange triangle and on our way back we seen a jeep that was parked in the same spot that lead you into the path for the lookout and did not recognize the orange triangle.. best advice is

1. park at the 2nd gate, it says no motor vehicles beyond the 1st gate.. but when you turn into the parking lot "it will say no motor behicles" but griving down the road will save you a good bit of walking( less than a mile)on the gravel road when any car can drive to the next gate. [ I wish I would if drove to the 2nd gate]

2. from the 2nd gate you walk down a slight hill decline and watch to the right of you for the orange triangle on the tree. It is small so watch for it! You will see a little foot path that leads you to the lookout! It was really muddy at the beginning of the path so be prepared.

3. beautiful site though!

So I rode the American Standard which is an extension of this trail system.
The last two miles had large rocks which made it virtually impassable for a biker or hiker.

Someone did ruin it for hikers and bikers and should be taken outside and canned in public.

I live in PA and pay taxes and have the same rights to this land as whoever the jack ass was who did this.... AND, I have a fishing license which allows me on this land.

Shame on Jim Thorpe for allowing this.
It's an absolute disgrace. Negligent, with malice, and intent.

Human beings can just be bad people.

Yes, I'm pissed.

What can be done here to seek retribution or at least piece of mind that they did a terrible thing.

OHHH! I'm sorry, how long is hunting season????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

loved it beatiful and scenic
