Worlds End State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Legend has it that Worlds End got its name from a group
of early settlers who, upon reaching the edge of the valley
overlooking the Loyalsock Creek, looked across and declared
the mountain range “the end of the world.” Worlds End State Park is located in the northern tier of Pennsylvania in the Endless Mountains region, one of the most scenic areas of the state. The countryside surrounding the park is a maze of steep, narrow valleys and rocky ridges, which create wonderful mountain scenery.
The interesting feature of the terrain is that, unlike the peaks of varying heights and forms found in a typical mountain range, most of the ridges and high points here are relatively close in elevation. That is because this landscape was formed over millions of years by the erosive action of creeks carving deep ravines into the surface of the Allegheny plateau, a generally level area that rises here to an elevation of about 1,800 feet above sea level."
