Take a drive to photograph the beautiful Loyalsock Canyon Vista.

Take a drive to World's End State Park through the Loyalsock Valley and enjoy a great view. Once you enter the state park via 154, drive past the main parking area and take a right onto Mineral Spring Road and follow it until you take a left onto Cold Run Road. The road up is about two miles - when you reach the parking area at the top, follow the walkway to the vista. 

This spot is a spectacular place to enjoy the park. Any time of year is a great time to view the scenery; however, the fall foliage in October is always the most beautiful. If you go in the spring and summer, you will be treated to the sunset directly in front of you. This is a great spot if you are out for a drive and have the whole family, or when you just might need a moment by yourself any time of the year. I recommend visiting as often as you can.

    This is a simple easy to get to and has a great view. I have also hiked to this in the winter when the road was iced over. Fall is probably the best time to visit!

    The area I have grown up in and am thankful to call home today, Lycoming County, PA has been one of my favorite subjects. From a simple hobby to what has become a passion, photography is a part of my life.

    This is a moderate hike that does involve some uphill hiking to reach the top of the plateau and some downhill hiking to reach the base of the waterfall.
