Haystacks Professional Review and Guide

"This is an easy, pleasant hike along Loyalsock Creek to the Haystacks boulders area and Dutchman Run Falls. At the falls you can explore the site where the falls empties into the creek. With its deep, hemlock-shaded valleys and plenty of pine needles covering the ground, this area could justly be described as picturesque.

This hike got its name from a section of Loyalsock Creek where sandstone boulders—which are said to look like haystacks—create a series of rapids in an otherwise calm creek. The best time to see these rapids is when the water level is high—in
spring after the winter melt-off or late fall after the area’s rainy season. The Haystacks lie at the eastern terminus of the 59.3-mile-long Loyalsock Trail."
