Amazing High Knob Overlook in Summer

We continue our summer looks at some places that we have checked out in autumn, with a look at the SPECTACULAR High Knob Overlook.  Here is an article from an autumn visit we made to this place. 

41.444221, -76.679035
It is located near Worlds End State Park in Loyalsock State Forest. This area is so remote that it is actually dark skies rated by the International Dark-Sky Association. You can see for at least twenty miles from this overlook on most days, and up to forty miles away on clear days from a vantage point that is roughly 1200 feet from the lowest point on the valley floor.
The views here are captivating and incredible from this overlook that is roughly 1200 feet above the valley floor.
80 percent of Loyalsock State Forest, roughly 90,000 acres of land open to recreation for all Pennsylvanians, are visible from this location.
While this overlook is incredible with its summer greenery, it is even more incredible with fiery autumn colors. My last visit to this place was during a spectacular autumn sunset.
Dry Run Falls
Coordinates: 41.430345, -76.670412
Our last stop takes us to Dry Run Falls. It is certainly a pretty little waterfall, and worth a stop on your way out from the High Knob Overlook and Worlds End State Park. There is a nice little picnic area next to the falls if you would like to have a picnic lunch next to the falls.
