Endless Mountains Trail

Cliffs of the balds

The Endless Mountains Trail (EMT) is a trail concept that would connect the east end of the Loyalsock Trail to famous Ricketts Glen State Park.  The trail is also envisioned to head north through SGL 57, ending near Forkston.  It would connect Worlds End to Ricketts Glen, two of Pennsylvania’s premier state parks, with a continuous hiking trail.

If it becomes a reality, the EMT would be one of the most scenic trails in the eastern U.S. with unparalleled diversity, including dozens of waterfalls, gorges, glens, vistas, ponds, isolation, spruce and hemlock forests, whitewater rapids, caves, crevices, cliffs, rock overhangs, old mine, ice industry ruins, bedrock balds, and wetlands.
