Scenery You'll See
This road trip is a bonanza of scenery. You'll be traveling through the beautiful Tidaghton State Forest and eventually make it to the "World's End State Park."

For approximately 40 miles of this route you will travel on PA 44 and PA 414 through the huge Tidaghton State Forest. Tiadaghton was the name the Iroquois gave to Pine Creek, the largest tributary of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. You will hug the banks and cross Pine creek several times as you go through the forest. At times you will ride beside shear rock walls, and at others you will ride along a railroad bed that has been converted into a 62 mile bike/hiking path. The park offers lots of fishing, hiking, biking swimming and picnicking opportunities and on a nice day you will see people enjoying all of these activities along the way. You will see many mountains and valleys as you wind you way through the valleys. Lots of trees, streams, mountains, trails, a recreation areas are what you will see. Later, for approximately 300 miles outside of the Tidaghton, you will travel along rolling hills of farmland as you twist an turn along what once was a cow path that connected farm to farm. Along this stretch you will see far and wide as you travel along the roller-coaster ride offered-up by PA414. Finally, you make it to the "End of the World!" Worlds End State Park is in a narrow S-shaped valley of the Loyalsock Creek just south of Forksville, Sullivan County. The scenery is spectacular, especially the June mountain laurel and fall foliage. Canyon Vista, reached via Mineral Spring and Cold Run roads, provides outstanding views. Loyalsock Creek is stocked with trout each year by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. The cold mountain water provides good fishing most of the year.
Attractions & Points-of-Interests Along the Way
In terms of attractions, this route is a bit limited ... it's primarily just an incredible scenic drive. However, you will pass through Williamsport which offers every amenity you would need. In addition to Williamsport, there are several recreational park areas along the route. And, to get a bit of little local flavor, I would encourage you to spend some time in Forksville and walk across the covered bridge and visit the Forksville General Store.

Comments: I took this trip last fall and the scenery was incredible. This area of PA is not toured as much as some others but it is one of the nicest in terms of scenery and much less crowded than some of the other popular areas.
