Great trail..marked really good..2 overlooks. Warrens Window and Canyon Vista. 4.7 miles took me almost 4 hours with a few stops.

Today was a great hike. The blue markings on the trees were easy to follow and the views throughout were beautiful. Took us about 3 hours.
We enjoyed the babbling brooks throughout the tails. Mostly shaded. The vistas are well worth the hike to see.

Hiked this as a loop... followed the old LT out along the creek then climbed up to the falls. Very little trace of old blazes but it’s a pretty clear trail. When you intersect with a small (dry) creek bed just past a fire ring, turn right and start climbing uphill to the falls. Once you start seeing the blue blazes you are good to follow up to the rerouted LT. Waterfall was just a small trickle when I went two weeks ago.

Hard to get lost on this one... blazes every where! Nice hike with two vistas and the rock garden is pretty neat as well.

I recommend doing the hike counter-clockwise starting from the Family Campground at Rt. 154. That means completing the loop with a stretch of level hiking beside the Loyalsock Creek, making for a very nice finish. The view at the canyon lookout is well worth the effort and be sure to check out the nearby Rock Garden, an impressive jumble of huge boulders and rock formations! Just long and strenuous enough, with visual treats along the way, to make it a very enjoyable and rewarding hike!

Fun hike, some parts of the trail weren't well marked.

did this hike yesterday with my dog. parked on Rt 154 east of the campground entrance. It took me 3.5 hours to do about 6ish miles. I went counter clockwise on the Canyon Vista Trail (next time I'd do the reverse). to make it longer, I took the red x link trail (roughly 1 mile) down to the green double run trail (roughly 1 mile loop). I recommend doing the green trail counter clockwise so you so the two best falls face on. these falls are well worth the effort the vista at the top is a great opening (just know people can also drive to it and there are restrooms). Moderate level hike that my 1.5 yr golden loved playing in the streams.

Fun hike, we did on a dry week not much water going over the falls. Some mud along the way, pretty impressive falls.

Awesome trail!!! Amazing views and places to camp can’t wait to do it again!!!

Great trail! With a beautiful waterfall

Nice short hike to get the blood flowing

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

Great hike. Easy all around. The view was great. There were a lot of natural rock formations that were worth it. Great family hike.

the view was so rewarding

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.

Beautiful day for exploring this trail. I parked at the family campground and hiked counter clockwise... either way is going to be a lot of uphill but I think this way was less brutal on the ascent. There are two great vistas and lots of rock gardens are boulders along the way to explore. It was a bit muddy today so the hiking boots were definitely a wise choice. This is the most blazed happy trail I’ve ever seen, there must be 400 trail markers in the 4.3 mile loop!

Great trail! A little soggy in places and had to cross the stream on downed logs a few places but unlike the adventure! The Fall are beautiful! I did loose the blazing but was easy to follow the stream back to the Loyalsock Trail.

Short steep climbs with level grades in between. We did this as an overnight with a side trip into Ketchum Run Gorge, which I highly recommend. There is a west facing campsite at the edge of the gorge that the trail passes by. If you want to be treated to an amazing sunset, camp here. You can also hike down into the gorge. There is a small waterfall there. Very nice outing.

beautiful country

challenging hike uphill and down. hidden waterfall if you listen closely. beautiful vistas and scenery along the way.

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.

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
