Definitely recommend using this app while hiking, it’s easy to slip off into a different trail by accident if you’re not paying attention. I went in late October, but would recommend going a little earlier before most of the leaves have fallen off the trees. All of the leaves on the trail made it pretty difficult to see where you can step, especially in rocky areas. There were some steep up and down points, but overall was a very manageable hike

Great loop! Some parts of Link Trail (yellow with red “x”) hard to follow but we made it! Lots of traffic today on the roads we crossed and the trails. My recording stopped part way through and I didn’t notice for awhile, but I think it would have been about 17 miles.

beautiful hike with a little bit of everything but this trail map provided is inaccurate and the elevation gain is definitely far more than a hundred feet if you want to see The view at the top

BackpackingGreat!

Hike was part of a 2 day adventure, going counter clockwise and starting at the park office. Other than the Loyalsock Creek itself, water sources are extremely low. Very nice campsites up towards the Iron Bridge, between Rt 154 and Rock Run Rd. However the closer to the bridge you get the more the campsites are full with people "car camping". If your looking for seclusion these spots are not the ones to take.

The trail from the park office to get to the loop was the best hiking part. the loop itself is just ok. The view at the top is great though.

BF and I did this as a 2 nighter, for 4th of July weekend. Clockwise from park HQ, 13.6 miles for the first day, the other 6 and change the second day. Awesome hike that challenged us, but didn’t ruin us. Stayed at the last site past the iron bridge before you hit the link trail, only downside was proximity to 154, and hearing the cars/ easy access for many with kids, etc, just out for a few hours. Hiked 10a- 6p the first day, and 11a-2:30p the second. Packs were loaded down with way too much unnecessary weight. Can definitely see how this would be a straight mud pit in the spring, there were portions that were quite muddy even now as dry as it’s been. Also can see how you could loose the trail, despite very well marked trail blazes, in the fall with leaf litter, if not for the AllTrails app. All in all I’d give it a SOLiD 5 for a weekend warrior loop.

Nice easy trail. Did this during at the end of backpacking the Loyalsock to link trail. The stream is peaceful and would be great for dogs. Overall just a nice area to be surrounded by.

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

The whole Link trail is 7 miles one way, ending near Shanersburg road on rt 154 about 4 miles from the beginning of the trail, or at 14 mile out and back. Lots of different terrain.
