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 day, had the trail to myself all day. The rocks looked a little intimidating shortly after passing Double Run, but really turned out to be no big deal. The view at the top is worth it, and hiking down via the Loyalsock Link Trail was a perfect way to end the day.

Went there in the beginning of November. Stayed at Worlds End Family Campground and hiked right off our site. Wound up being about 4 miles, and some parts were very steep, but it was well worth the view! Be sure to check out the rock garden to the right of the view- there’s one behind the parking lot as well.

Definitely worth the hike out...followed LT from road...wet trail in spots then to Blue Dot Trail to the Falls....did in and out trail was marked good and Blue Dot picks up Blue with X...I hiked back the LT back where I started.

steep first then long rd.

The hike starts out leisurely, but once you cross the small stream the serious uphill begins. The trail becomes quite rocky in places, with some big boulders thrown in as a challenge. Do the loop counter clockwise - I'd rather scramble up rocks than down them. The view from the vista point is rewarding. The hike is short, with enough uphill to get the heart thumping and a good view. I found it delightful!

Parked at family campground so hike ended up being 4 miles. Can be steep in some parts but I enjoyed the many switchbacks and rocky terrain. Can be wet and muddy in some areas after rain because of the streams that run down the mountain.

Incredible trail with varying difficulties all throughout. 9/17 - 9/22 with a day break at World's End SP. I wished I didn't take a break since I did it by myself, I felt like I was just wasting time at World's End. I wouldn't trust mile markers. After a while I just assumed that I was at least an eighth or a quarter mile behind what the mile marker said. Great shoes and poles are a must! There were handful of muddy trails that made me wish I had hiking boots instead of trail runners. Many primitive camp site options every 5 to 10 miles. I stayed at all the potential campsites mentioned in the trail guide book and they were all excellent with fire rings and close proximity to water source. So many breathtaking vistas! I can't wait to go back to see all the beautiful parts of the trail and fully enjoy it. If you are starting from western end, you can leave your car/gear at Little bear creek road lot. Walk 1.5 miles to the trail head, and do the most difficult part of the trail without your gear as you'll pass the parking lot after about 4 miles in the trail. I highly encourage doing this as the first few miles will absolutely kick your butt. With AT&T I had spotty signals for first day or two then absolutely nothing until I was about 4~5 miles from finish. At World's End they have a public phone that you can either make collect call (landline only no cell#) or use calling card. At ranger station, the lady was nice enough to let me use the office phone to let my wife know that I was doing ok. Be prepared! and enjoy!

Great little hike. The vista is a little hard to see mid-season when everything is overgrown

Well marked trail. Little over crowded at times. Vista is nice but it was overcrowded because you can drive to it
