Just awesome! Note: if you go counter clockwise it’s a workout. No worries if you’ve been hiking PA hills for a while but not recommended for a first time hike or if you’re not in shape. To much to even talk about with this trail, one amazing thing after another.

My mother and I did the World's End Trail today (March 16th). It was like trying to walk up a slide filled with ice. We missed the World's End Vista entirely...as in, we passed right by thinking it was a scenic view not an amazing vista...plus there was no sign. We ended up doing the entire ice-filled World's End Trail, after missing the LT turn ( our fault...it is marked, but since we hadn't passed the "vista " we couldn't believe it was the turn we needed so we kept going expecting another trail crossing. ) Anyway, some pretty treacherous hiking for a summer hiker....at one point we were sliding on our butts to even make progress. I almost came down "the fast way"...if you know what I mean. yikes.
I will definitely go back in the summer.

Beautiful views

great hike.. will definitely do again.

Nice easy trail well marked

Not difficult but long. Beautiful views from Warren’s Window and the Vista, and towards the end beautiful giant rocks which made that part of the forest magical. Will do this again but the other way around so as to spend more time exploring the rocks while still full of energy.

Beautiful short trail. I would rate it on the easier end of moderate even though it was wet and slippery on the stairs and bridges when I was there. Just take your time and consider your footing.

Awesome hike! with waterfalls! Nice elevation change. If the water is high enough there is even a spot to go for a little swim in the creek about a quarter mike in.

This is such a magical trail! We started our hike by heading South from the family camping ground, and it made for a pretty easy hike. Nice vistas of the Loyalsock, and we played in the “rock garden” for a bit after eating lunch at the Loyalsock Canyon Vista parking area - just follow the trail beside the bathroom.

On the back half of our loop, we hit downhill switchbacks, giant rock areas that look like they’re right off the set of the TV show Outlander, and ended with an easy walk along the river. (Going the other way would be BRUTAL.) Was a fantastic end to such a great hike. I highly recommend this hike and will definitely be back for more!

Nice hike on a brisk partly sunny day! Easy going with lots of wet spots mainly due to our rainy summer! All in all a very pleasant hike, picturesque stream, lots of ferns and hemlocks!

Had a nice quiet hike amidst the hemlock and ferns. Some muddy spots. Definitely left some footprints. Dress warmly as the trail is very shaded. The stream is very picturesque. Wildlife was sparse. Not too difficult.

Loved the canyon Vista and the rock garden made us kids again.

great trail for a good work out. not too strenuous and fairly easy for those in little athletic shape. view at the middle and end are well worth the hike. I'd give yourself a good 2-3 hrs to give yourself time for breaks and just taking in the scenery

Spectacular, easy hike with many cascades and waterfalls which were even more spectacular because of recent rains! Kid friendly trail and I recommend a counter clockwise hike! Enjoy, it’s worth the effort!

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

Tough hike however worth it. Various terrain with many different views. We added the cold run spur with this loop which added an additional 1.5 miles. Would definitely consider doing this again.

Great hike! 4 mike loop that starts along the water and goes up to two different look outs. Highly recommend. Completed in 3 hours with many stops to look at the views.

If you like waterfalls, this trail is for YOU! There are so many of them and they’re beautiful! Cottonwood Falls surely is the most impressive, but the others are no less remarkable to see. For the short length of this trail, it really packs a lot of excitement! One of my favorites!

This is such a fun and rewarding hike! I did the loop counterclockwise, seeing the beautiful vistas fist and then exploring the massive boulder garden. I loved it and will definitely be back to do this one again!

A favorite hike, spring, summer or fall. Double Run stream is really beautiful, with a couple of especially lovely small falls on the way to Cottonwood Falls. And some of the rocks/boulders in the stream are great places to simply sit (or lie) for a while, enjoying the sublime beauty and serenity of this special place.
While there are a few steep stretches, I do not consider this a 'hard' hike, and I'm in my 60s and not in the best shape.

I almost always give 4 or 5 stars I like hiking and I find joy in most trails. Angel falls is by far a favorite. I have taken many friends there and if you can get up there while the Mountain Laurel is blooming I would!

Fun loop with cool waterfalls, steep at some parts though

Nice short hike, pretty cool waterfall. Steep at times stairs along the way. I would recommend walking counter clock wise.

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.

Great challenging trail. Very well marked. Sprinkled with a few small waterfalls. Loved it!

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