    Good job!

    jkad:

    Where on the Loyalsock? What stretch of water? That's a great creek to kayak!

    Nice pics!

    Now I gotta go design a Formula One Kayak with a Snotty Honda CR 500 2 stroker for go power. Ya... Ya... imagine that going down through Harvey's creek at 70!

    Just kidding... back to work!

    Hey Lee...the waterfall in the Pic is called "Angle Falls" it's part of a small trib that
    flows into the Loyalsock. The falls are of interest to ice climbers in the winter.
    The trail itself I think is called Ryans trail.
    Later on Bro...

    Bonking ... not feelin' well Not to poach your thread....

    Anyone want to start up how great the riding (could be) around the Loyalsock and the World's End State Park area(s)? Without dragging up the whole, "Whatever happened to Eagle's Mere Mountain Bikes", etc.?
    I'm through that area a couple of times a year and tried riding it on my own (after getting some verbal directions from the then owner of EMMB...Shambaugh? over the phone as it was the "off season") but never found anything that was ridden enough (when do we as riders ever find that problem? usually, just the opposite!) to easily follow.
    BUT, it looked like it COULD be great riding without much effort! A real destination spot to spend a weekend. Camping avail.right at World's End, and Eagle's Mere there if you wanted to "head into town".
    AND...jkad...seriously? You're hard core!

    OR...now that I re-read the thread before posting this....am I WAY off base geography wise with anywhere NEAR the part of the Loyalsock that you were talking about?
    I have been through World's End on weekends where they've been holding kayak competitions.

    It definately could be great riding, the trails are already in great shape. I dont think the hikers would appreciate bikers.
    It's not really in the Worlds End state park, however I do believe it is a state park.
    If ya cant ride it, may as well hike it camp it and enjot it.

    And Happy St Pattys day to ya.
