It was a nice short hike for me but I did get confused when I came off the trail onto a road with cabins.... turns out I needed to follow the road just a short ways down to get back on the trail.

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

Nice loop trail with views. You can get down to the river and away from weekend crowds. Overall nice hike but not secluded.

Just hiked this trail with my buddy yesterday (3/14/2018)-(3/15/2018) and man it was a tough one for sure. We planned on camping two nights but there was a lot more snow on the ground than we anticipated. The snow averaged anywhere from 5-9 inches throughout the trail. Wednesday we walked in roughly 5 miles and camped by the Iron Bridge after parking off of 220. There were three campsites and they were all really nice with stone fire pits! We woke up pretty cold to the weather in the teens and the wind blowing which we were expecting but once we got hiking we were fine. We made great time along the LT even in the snow because it was really well marked with blazes on a tree almost every 10 feet. It was a little slippery at times but were were prepared so we had little issues. We made it to the visitor center in worlds end state park quite swiftly around 2pm after starting our hike around 9:30am. We decided we didn't want to stay another night on the trail so we skipped where we were going to camp and hustled back to the car. The link trail was nice but there wasn't a whole lot to look at other than the vista in the very beginning. The link was only marked maybe every 30 yards and was a bit hard to navigate especially in the snow so this is why I have given the loop 4 stars. I would definitely hike the LT again but as far as the link goes I don't think I would hike that section again. I hope this review is helpful!!!

This is not easy. Wasn’t for me anyways. Was fun though

Most of this trail is part of the horseshoe trail also. This part is clearly marked. It is nice to see a trail with no litter, unlike other nearby trails.

Not 6 miles!! I didn’t track it but it was between 1 and 2 miles. But it was a nice hike. It was beautiful.

Beautiful scenery! Good hike. We took the dog he loved it too!

Such a nice little hike, many other trails in the area to make a longer more challenging hike.. Balanced Rock viewing area was well worth seeing

Great trail, with pleasant views. Cross rolling hills, along a stream, with views from the woods of farmers fields. You will cross seven bridges over streams and a tunnel under 944. At the top of the ridge you can sit on a rock bench and enjoy the view. A bit muddy today, particularly on our way back to the trailhead after the ground thawed.
I will do this hike again.

The reservoir is a beautiful spot. Great wide open camping area.

Poorly mapped, but a great adventure!!

Muddy but a very well marked along the creek and up the mountain. The trail has beautiful scenery and is very well maintained. The overlook is a nice bonus.


A very short, easy trail. Might be a good one to take a young kid on to introduce them to hiking. Not challenging at all. It's a beautiful spot - lots of old growth trees making it shady on a lot of the trail. It's pretty and relaxing and we've spent a lot of time here. There are picnic tables at the parking area.

This is our go-to spot since it is pretty close to Philadelphia and it's a loop. It's not always easy to drive many hours for a hike so this works. Great spots to camp, moderate elevations. Southern loop was recently rerouted and has a lot to offer - waterfall with rope swing and a nice swimming hole as well as BEAVERS. Get outside folks and leave no trace!

The actual Alan Seeger loop is only .8 miles. But it is absolutely beautiful. Beautiful old growth Hemlock, countless native rhododendrum, and stone creek , make up this hike. I would be sure to wear higher boots because you will get you feet wet. In some areas the trail was flooded up to my shins this evening. Also this trail is not blazed, so just use your eye and it's pretty easy to stay on track. Especially with the rhododendrum actually forming tunnels over the trail in some placed, makes it difficult to go to far off.

A nice hike with no real elevation. Very wet and gushy at places. Pinchot is a very nice park and great for camping!!

Great times with friends out on the trail. Didn’t quite finish but conquered 2/3 of the trail. It’s been an annual trip every summer.

Absolutely love this trail for the summer, the waters cold but worth the swim!

This trail is very easy it is about a mile down to the falls. I recommend bringing water because you could be at the falls for a while. I recommend this trail for all ages because kids like to play in the creek near the falls. If you come in the summer you can go swimming. Over all this is a great trail and the falls are beautiful.

Hiked from Sherwood Dr parking to Darlington Shelter and back. It was a fun hike although the trail was quite swampy in spots. Definitely recommend some waterproof hiking boots. The climb up to the overlook is just enough to get the heart rate going. Nice view. Looking forward to doing this hike again after it dries out!

Nice campsites along Sones Pond and Loyalsock River. Recommend the Loyalsock-Link Trail loop

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.

I did South Loop as an overnight. Parked car at lot on Bushkills Falls Road at Flat Ridge Road since my overnight destination was to camp along Bushkill Creek. This divided the loop almost equally in half. West side of loop is wetter and characteristic of wetlands. Expect wet feet. Tricky stream crossings due to recent rains and snowmelt causing higher water levels over what would normally have been a simple rock hop, but there are bridges over the larger streams. East side is higher and drier through logging activity areas, down and up small ridges. The best camping is along south end by Bushkill Creek and Red Rock Run although you are free to camp anywhere along the loop. If you are a hammock hanger, you have even more options. The footpath is typical PA rocky footing, tedious at times . Good winter destination in my opinion because it is obvious where trail could become overgrown quickly with plenty of ticks and mosquitoes in other times of the year. A good example of PA wetlands if you have never experienced it. Also deciduous trees dominant - should be pretty in fall. Plenty of water sources and solitude ( at least this particular weekend in February). I only saw one dayhiker on my way out from camp. Day 1 mileage 8.5 miles. Day 2 mileage 9.7 miles. Next time, I might explore the side trails into the swamps and natural areas.
