the view was so rewarding

This park is truly beautiful. Lots of water features, interesting terrain. My only complaint is that some of these trails are very close to roads. While the roads may not be heavily trafficked, you still don’t feel like you are truly “in nature.” Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed hiking here and would definitely come back again in the summer when the trees are in full bloom. We started at the Worlds End trailhead next to the Park Office, took LT to Pioneer Road, Double Run Nature Trail, took the Link Trail southbound, up to the Loyalsock Canyon Vista where we stopped for lunch and then finished the LT loop back to the start.

Beautiful day for exploring this trail. I parked at the family campground and hiked counter clockwise... either way is going to be a lot of uphill but I think this way was less brutal on the ascent. There are two great vistas and lots of rock gardens are boulders along the way to explore. It was a bit muddy today so the hiking boots were definitely a wise choice. This is the most blazed happy trail I’ve ever seen, there must be 400 trail markers in the 4.3 mile loop!

Great trail! A little soggy in places and had to cross the stream on downed logs a few places but unlike the adventure! The Fall are beautiful! I did loose the blazing but was easy to follow the stream back to the Loyalsock Trail.

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.

Went today when the roads were snowy 02/03/2018 but was able to drive all up and around the trails with beautiful scenic lookout at the top! Definitely want to go when theres no snow so i can hike around!

I did the entire loop starting on the Fern Rock Trail and then bushwacking down the gorge until I reached the LT which led me to Worlds End Rd. Then followed the blue/red trail to High Knob Rd parking lot. Probably about 7 miles total. Trail was super icy and snowy, so I would highly recommend not doing this hike in the winter unless you have proper footwear. The gorge is beautiful and I passed lots of waterfalls and cascades. I would love to return in the summer. Didn't pass a single soul the entire time. 5 hours of hiking in all.

Beautiful day, had the trail to myself all day. The rocks looked a little intimidating shortly after passing Double Run, but really turned out to be no big deal. The view at the top is worth it, and hiking down via the Loyalsock Link Trail was a perfect way to end the day.

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.

Definitely worth the hike out...followed LT from road...wet trail in spots then to Blue Dot Trail to the Falls....did in and out trail was marked good and Blue Dot picks up Blue with X...I hiked back the LT back where I started.

steep first then long rd.

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.

Challenging little loop with good views of the creek and some falls. Slippery when wet. Made this into a four-mile loop starting at the visitor center by going up the LT/Worlds End trail, crossing the road, doing the double run loop, then coming back on the Link Trail.

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

Well marked trail. Little over crowded at times. Vista is nice but it was overcrowded because you can drive to it

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.

Nice trail. We happened to go after it rained so a little muddy. Beautiful views up top. It's about 3.5 miles each way. Pretty flat with one incline which wasn't too bad. Incline was well maintained. Parking lot with bathrooms up top.

We've stumbled across the trail before and weren't sure if it was worth it. After reading the reviews here we decided to give it a try. It was definitely worth it for our family which includes 2 adults and 2 teens. Harder than we expected going in and can be tough for some coming out on a decline. We did the in and out trail which was well marked. We walked past the Spring Window to go down the trail in order to get into the falls. Ate our lunches there then headed back out. Overall, we all liked it and would do it again - at some point.

Great PA woodland hike. Great overlook and lots of varied wildlife. Trail can be steep in places.

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

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!!!

Fun hike! A few notes: the hike out to the falls follows the Loyalstock Trail and then a blue dot trail to view the falls, both are well marked. To come back on the loop as the map here shows we followed the old Loyalstock trail which is not frequently travelled and possibly no longer maintained (large trees down on the trail). We had to search hard to find the faint yellow and red markings still barely remaining on the trees. It made for an adventure but may have been easier to do as an out and back.

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!

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.

Great hike to get out and see nature at its finest. My girl friend and I did this as a overnighter to just get out. As we started our trip, within the first mile we encountered 5 bear in two different locations. Scared my girl friend but we survived. The hiking is a bit rough from the start with an uphill trek from the start. Uphill most of the way to the falls. I will be doing this again with my son very soon. The falls are beautiful and worth the trip.

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. Lot of different terrain.
