Great trail..marked really good..2 overlooks. Warrens Window and Canyon Vista. 4.7 miles took me almost 4 hours with a few stops.

Today was a great hike. The blue markings on the trees were easy to follow and the views throughout were beautiful. Took us about 3 hours.
We enjoyed the babbling brooks throughout the tails. Mostly shaded. The vistas are well worth the hike to see.

Hiked this as a loop... followed the old LT out along the creek then climbed up to the falls. Very little trace of old blazes but it’s a pretty clear trail. When you intersect with a small (dry) creek bed just past a fire ring, turn right and start climbing uphill to the falls. Once you start seeing the blue blazes you are good to follow up to the rerouted LT. Waterfall was just a small trickle when I went two weeks ago.

Hard to get lost on this one... blazes every where! Nice hike with two vistas and the rock garden is pretty neat as well.

I recommend doing the hike counter-clockwise starting from the Family Campground at Rt. 154. That means completing the loop with a stretch of level hiking beside the Loyalsock Creek, making for a very nice finish. The view at the canyon lookout is well worth the effort and be sure to check out the nearby Rock Garden, an impressive jumble of huge boulders and rock formations! Just long and strenuous enough, with visual treats along the way, to make it a very enjoyable and rewarding hike!

Fun hike, some parts of the trail weren't well marked.

did this hike yesterday with my dog. parked on Rt 154 east of the campground entrance. It took me 3.5 hours to do about 6ish miles. I went counter clockwise on the Canyon Vista Trail (next time I'd do the reverse). to make it longer, I took the red x link trail (roughly 1 mile) down to the green double run trail (roughly 1 mile loop). I recommend doing the green trail counter clockwise so you so the two best falls face on. these falls are well worth the effort the vista at the top is a great opening (just know people can also drive to it and there are restrooms). Moderate level hike that my 1.5 yr golden loved playing in the streams.

Fun hike, we did on a dry week not much water going over the falls. Some mud along the way, pretty impressive falls.

Great trail! With a beautiful waterfall

Waterfalls along the trail and the grand vista at Worlds End makes this moderate hike memorable.

Great hike. Easy all around. The view was great. There were a lot of natural rock formations that were worth it. Great family hike.

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.

forksville general store! always have good finds at a general store.

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.

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.

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
