The Friends of Worlds End State Park will also be on hand along with local trailblazing legends Dave Kowalewski and Ruth Rode who will be able to answer any hiking questions you may have. The Friends will also be selling copies of the new Falls & Views Loop: Exploring the Wildness of Worlds End State Park and Loyalsock State Forest. Dave and Ruth have spent the last three years using their combined decades of local trailblazing experience to create this new 70-page guide and map to more than 90 seasonal waterfalls and 40 views!
