This ride follows the beautiful ridges atop Worlds End State Park. The park itself is in an S-shaped canyon of sheer beauty—”Sheer” in the sense that the mountain walls end in vertical cliffs that drop hundreds of feet right into the Loyalsock Creek. The first road through the gorge above the cliff bands, on the precipitous face of the mountain. Travelers along this high and exposed route thought they had come to the “end of the world”—to get a feel for this, travel up Mineral Springs Road for about 0.4 miles and look out over the edge as the road nears the top of the cliff. Highlights: remote woodland ride; stream crossing; ruins of an old coal mining operation; beautiful flora and fauna; whitewater boating; trout fishing; Worlds End State Park amenities which include swimming on the Loyalsock Creek, camping, restrooms, and seasonal concessions. Tread: grassy old woods road make up most of the ride. A few sections of fast, hardpacked fire roads and fun singletrack.
