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.

3/9/19- Gorgeous sunny day and moderate comfortable temps of 40°-45°. Trail was great, but slightly challenging due to snow/ice covered areas. Micro spikes are a very good suggestion this time of year for the next few weeks. A hiker should be always mindful of step and footing placement due to snow melt effects. Sound looking patches of snow deceivingly are not stable and a stretch of trail along lower loop does not have trees or supporting rocks to guard against a steep drop and trail access is very narrow here right now. Use caution, but only due to winter like conditions. In dryer, warmer weather it is not an issue. Slightly Rocky section from lower loop to Vista but very beautiful reward for this easy to moderate loop. Perfect quick day outing trail to spend time with friends and family taking in our local forest beauty❣️ Enjoy

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.

I'm not sure about this being an "easy" trail, more on the moderate side. Fun forest hike with a small stream. No real overlook or views except for some small gaps through the trees.
Watch out for snakes.

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.

Fun trail. Watch your step at times, especially with all the wet leaves.

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.

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!

Great hike! Recommend traversing clockwise taking the upper around to lower! Not for the inexperienced or young children! Moderately difficult trail! Awesome vista and due to recent rainfall lots of water and waterfalls! 1 1/2 to 2 hour round trip!

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!

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!

One of my favorites at world's end. the mileage isn't bad and there is some fun rock formations, some scramble areas but very enjoyable.

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
