Great hike and even better camping spots. I did 16 miles of this trail twice and most recently took my younger brother and nephew to give them their first overnight/outdoor experience. They loved it! Once we got to the CCC, we camped about another 1/2 mile into the trail right along the river. I actually landed this spot once before and it's perfect if you want to go swimming and even do some cliff diving. Great hikes for dogs and at times can be a bit "terrainy", but not a bad hike for second or third timers.

Great trail; several nice waterfalls, a couple of vistas, plenty of water & campsites. For a slightly shorter, 2-day, 1-night trip (about 20 miles) you could start at World's End SP, on the Link Trail half of the loop, and camp along Loyalsock Creek below Rte 154, or at the Haystacks (+4 miles round trip), then take the LT section back to the park.

Pretty significant elevation gain. Lots of good places to camp. Lots of nice scenery and great vistas. Trail is notoriously swampy in some areas. Very rocky in others. But all around this is a great hike.

One of the best hikes in the state. I have done the Northern end a few times, starting off route 220, the Haystacks are really cool and there are some nice camping spots.
