The Alpine Club really does a great job keeping the Loyalsock Trail well maintained...that bring said, the record rainfall this summer has effected the trail, in spots. The final climb/decent to Smith’s Knob is steep, sandy and slippery! The views at the top are great-an enjoyable morning trek of moderate difficulty!

Beautiful views from the top but you really have to work to get there. A good amount of elevation and then it levels off for a bit, then a pretty brutal final climb up to the top. Be warned... several false summits that start to get really discouraging, but it’s worth it when you actually get there. Lots of gnats and mosquitos, and be prepared to walk through tons of spider webs. Good idea to have a hiking pole on the way down, my legs were jello! Only passed one other person, it’s pretty low traffic.

Took Loyalsock/Smith Knob trail all the way to Painters trail and back to the road which brought us back to the parking lot. Perfect day, great scenery, trail was very well maintained.

Hiked it liked it 3/11/18, great workout getting to the top, nice view at both Helen's Window and again at the very top. A little snowy on the back side of the knob, had to get out my micro spikes. This trail is close to home for me and will likely be one of my regulars.
