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.

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.

Great learning hike for the kids with short steep and technical sections, stairs and bridges. Also used the several trail intersections and overlaps for lessons with the blazes and map reading. All rewarded with small beautiful falls.

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

forksville general store! always have good finds at a general store.

I did the entire loop starting on the Fern Rock Trail and then bushwacking down the gorge until I reached the LT which led me to Worlds End Rd. Then followed the blue/red trail to High Knob Rd parking lot. Probably about 7 miles total. Trail was super icy and snowy, so I would highly recommend not doing this hike in the winter unless you have proper footwear. The gorge is beautiful and I passed lots of waterfalls and cascades. I would love to return in the summer. Didn't pass a single soul the entire time. 5 hours of hiking in all.

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.

Challenging little loop with good views of the creek and some falls. Slippery when wet. Made this into a four-mile loop starting at the visitor center by going up the LT/Worlds End trail, crossing the road, doing the double run loop, then coming back on the Link Trail.

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

Great hike, first time for my children ages 6-15. Rock garden on top makes it worthwhile and the trail along the creek for some rock hopping at the end was very enjoyable. Just enough up/down and gradual terrain to allow us to move at a consistent pace.

Definitely not an easy trail depending on your experience. This was more like moderate trail for my family. We were advised to take the Upper Rd to go up and Lower to come down. Glad we did. Just slow and steady with lots of water to get to the Vista and slow and careful for the various terrains for the descent. We enjoyed this hike.

We've stumbled across the trail before and weren't sure if it was worth it. After reading the reviews here we decided to give it a try. It was definitely worth it for our family which includes 2 adults and 2 teens. Harder than we expected going in and can be tough for some coming out on a decline. We did the in and out trail which was well marked. We walked past the Spring Window to go down the trail in order to get into the falls. Ate our lunches there then headed back out. Overall, we all liked it and would do it again - at some point.
