My mother and I did the World's End Trail today (March 16th). It was like trying to walk up a slide filled with ice. We missed the World's End Vista entirely...as in, we passed right by thinking it was a scenic view not an amazing vista...plus there was no sign. We ended up doing the entire ice-filled World's End Trail, after missing the LT turn ( our fault...it is marked, but since we hadn't passed the "vista " we couldn't believe it was the turn we needed so we kept going expecting another trail crossing. ) Anyway, some pretty treacherous hiking for a summer hiker....at one point we were sliding on our butts to even make progress. I almost came down "the fast way"...if you know what I mean. yikes.
I will definitely go back in the summer.

Beautiful views

great hike.. will definitely do again.

Nice hike, beautiful falls.

Not difficult but long. Beautiful views from Warren’s Window and the Vista, and towards the end beautiful giant rocks which made that part of the forest magical. Will do this again but the other way around so as to spend more time exploring the rocks while still full of energy.

Beautiful short trail. I would rate it on the easier end of moderate even though it was wet and slippery on the stairs and bridges when I was there. Just take your time and consider your footing.

Awesome hike! with waterfalls! Nice elevation change. If the water is high enough there is even a spot to go for a little swim in the creek about a quarter mike in.

Great short hike that makes you work. Good incline and has a nice outlook! My wife and I did this hike back in September with our dog.

Great trail hiked 46 miles of it in September and finished the last 13 a few weeks ago. If you plan to hike the entire trail the maps and guide from the alpine club of williamsport is very helpful. A few spots need some more markers or the markers moved to a more visible position. Lots of water available just be careful if you go after a rain storm as water collects along the trail in a lot of spots and crosses a few streams.

This is such a magical trail! We started our hike by heading South from the family camping ground, and it made for a pretty easy hike. Nice vistas of the Loyalsock, and we played in the “rock garden” for a bit after eating lunch at the Loyalsock Canyon Vista parking area - just follow the trail beside the bathroom.

On the back half of our loop, we hit downhill switchbacks, giant rock areas that look like they’re right off the set of the TV show Outlander, and ended with an easy walk along the river. (Going the other way would be BRUTAL.) Was a fantastic end to such a great hike. I highly recommend this hike and will definitely be back for more!

Not one of my favorite trails in this park. For how difficult the incline is ( climbing rocks for half the hike) the view at the end was just not worth it to me. good hike if you're looking to burn calories but I would try another trail for the views...

great trail for a good work out. not too strenuous and fairly easy for those in little athletic shape. view at the middle and end are well worth the hike. I'd give yourself a good 2-3 hrs to give yourself time for breaks and just taking in the scenery

Spectacular, easy hike with many cascades and waterfalls which were even more spectacular because of recent rains! Kid friendly trail and I recommend a counter clockwise hike! Enjoy, it’s worth the effort!

Best part of the Loyalsock-Link Loop. Awesome creekside campsites with places to swim. Much drier than the Loyalsock.

Worth the effort but definitely hike it counter clockwise, it’s easier to scramble up rocks than down!

I spend a lot of time on the LTI love it

Tough hike however worth it. Various terrain with many different views. We added the cold run spur with this loop which added an additional 1.5 miles. Would definitely consider doing this again.

Great hike! 4 mike loop that starts along the water and goes up to two different look outs. Highly recommend. Completed in 3 hours with many stops to look at the views.

If you like waterfalls, this trail is for YOU! There are so many of them and they’re beautiful! Cottonwood Falls surely is the most impressive, but the others are no less remarkable to see. For the short length of this trail, it really packs a lot of excitement! One of my favorites!

This is such a fun and rewarding hike! I did the loop counterclockwise, seeing the beautiful vistas fist and then exploring the massive boulder garden. I loved it and will definitely be back to do this one again!

A favorite hike, spring, summer or fall. Double Run stream is really beautiful, with a couple of especially lovely small falls on the way to Cottonwood Falls. And some of the rocks/boulders in the stream are great places to simply sit (or lie) for a while, enjoying the sublime beauty and serenity of this special place.
While there are a few steep stretches, I do not consider this a 'hard' hike, and I'm in my 60s and not in the best shape.

I almost always give 4 or 5 stars I like hiking and I find joy in most trails. Angel falls is by far a favorite. I have taken many friends there and if you can get up there while the Mountain Laurel is blooming I would!

This trail is great for a quick hike with a rewarding view. I did it after the butternut trail no problem!

Fun loop with cool waterfalls, steep at some parts though

Nice short hike, pretty cool waterfall. Steep at times stairs along the way. I would recommend walking counter clock wise.

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.
