Worlds End State Park is surrounded by the Loyalsock State Forest (previously named the Wyomimg S.F.). This Pennsylvania state park is named for its rugged mountains and impressive canyon views. Seven mountain ranges converge on a point, giving the feeling of being at the ends of the earth. Worlds End appeared on a map in 1872, but other names, such as Whirls Glen and Whirls End, added up for a local dispute. The park's name was changed back to Worlds End in 1943.
