it's short but the waterfall makes this trail excellent. You hike along the creek part of the trail and then there is a steep climb. Overall is it a great hike. Very beautiful area!!!

This is a great, short, somewhat steep hike. Done it a few times and plan to do it more. Really pretty, easy to get to and from, quick but still gets you some hard work especially for those of us trying to get back into hiking shape.

We just did the Loyalsock/Link Loop this weekend and had a great time. We went clockwise from the visitor center and did a one night stay at the pond. Some hard assents and decent on both legs, but very well marked which is always appreciated. Beautiful and diverse scenery, I would definitely recommend it!

this was a huffer for sure. we camped about 8.5 miles in near trail register, further back is a nice secluded camp with a rock couch. i would suggest a water filtration device as water is scarce. getting to sones pond from iron bridge in my opinion was the more difficult section of this trail. nice change of scenery throughout. the worlds end park office had nice bathrooms and a free phone to make calls if you wanted. the trail down from high rock vista was my favorite with all of the rock formations, canyon vista had best view and i would also watch out for swampy areas. we finished this trail in one overnight stay. would do again. saw 1 turkey as well.

took this in late October. beautiful!

Me and my dogs did day hikes of the trail I just keep them in sight but they have to greet all hikers

This is an easy trail that is nice to do
in the fall while the leaves are changing. The terrain was for the most part pretty flat so the view didn't change much.

Nice for a short hike. Starts with a slight uphill climb shortly into the hike followed by a very scenic downhill loop along the stream which contains a small (about 7ft) waterfall and a few cascades. I recorded the track at 1.46mi.

I hiked this trail January 16-18 2016. We started at the office and hiked clockwise. The initial ascent was a pretty good climb, but with fresh legs it wasn't bad. There was some snow and ice on the ground that made many parts of this trail just a little harder.

We camped at the first campsite at Sones pond on Saturday night. I would recommend the last campsite here. That one seemed a better protected from the pond. Especially if it is windy.

The Iron bridge is closed to vehicle traffic but as of now you are able to walk across it.

We stayed at the campsite right after Cold Run road. This is known as Devils Playground on some maps. There was a stream near the site. This area was very rocky and wet and it made for some difficulty putting up four small tents. Monday we woke up to a fresh layer of snow.

We were following three other hikers the whole time until we passed by them the last day. We had 5 runners pass us with saws. They were clearing the trail for an upcoming ultra-marathon. It was nice since they removed a lot of down trees along the trail. We saw 4 day hikers and 2 mountain bikers. So we did have some company while hiking but we never had to share a vista or a campsite.

All in all this was a nice scenic trail with a few decent climbs and descents. It was a very muddy trail in some parts. So be prepared to have wet and muddy feet most of the time during wet seasons. The LT was marked very well with the Link Trail only having a few spots where I questioned the direction the trail went.
