DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water!  Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, and carpooling directions.)

This trip will cover the entire length of the 59 mile Loyalsock Trail over 6 days. Originally laid out in 1951, the Loyalsock Trail is maintained by the Alpine Club of Williamsport. The trail follows mountain ridges and streams through the Loyalsock Creek watershed. Points of interest include waterfalls, scenic vistas, Worlds End State Park and the Haystacks. Daily mileages will range from 9 – 13 miles per day with daily elevation gains between 1300-2700 ft. We will stay at the Worlds End State Park campground Friday evening. Early Saturday morning, we will drive a short distance to the LT eastern terminus parking area to drop cars and then drive one car to the western terminus parking area to begin the hike. The 4th night of the hike will again be spent at Worlds End State Park campground. Camping on all other nights will be at unimproved backcountry sites. Depending on the number of hikers and vehicles, it may be possible to set up a resupply in a vehicle left at the state park. Otherwise, it will be necessary carry food for the entire trip. Due to the length of this hike and the challenging terrain, this trip is only open to experienced backpackers with recent relevant experience. For information or to sign-up contact Tom Overbaugh.
