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.

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.

Great little hike. The vista is a little hard to see mid-season when everything is overgrown

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.

Had a free day so drove up from central PA Easy to find trailhead. Park near family camping entrance.
Ascends quickly then undulates in the forest. Change in temp, foliage moss ferns and mushrooms plus imposing beautiful stone along the way.
Nice lookout over the creek canyon. Preview at " Warren's window" part way up is just as lovely as top

Did not see ANY other hikers- yes Thursday 10 am but it is midsummer.

One draw back. - Close to road 20% of the time even at viewpoint
There is a road to the top

This loop is 4 miles and well marked and well maintained. Part of the trail follows the loyal sock creek which is very nice to sit at after your hike. We will definetely return in the fall

trail was definitely more like 4.5 miles, very steep at times and i would consider it more difficult. we did it in about 3 hours and would definitely do it again!
