Worlds End State Park Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 10 photos
Unlike a lot of VTers, my family didn't do much traveling with me as a child. My parents were older when they had me, so I somehow got pawned off onto my sisters who already had children on their own. Their children were around my age (huge age difference between my siblings and me) so it made sense because we were all very close and got along well.
The first trip I remember taking with my sisters and their kids was to Worlds End. I was 6 or 7 and for a week we stayed in a cabin, hiked, swam, had campfires, etc. It was the greatest week I had ever had to that point.

But I did it...18 years later. The whole park was laid out differently--new funding, higher visitation and other changes that can occur over this long span of time.
I quickly stopped by on my way home from a VT meeting w/ Kazander in Dushore in early August and it was still definitely beautiful. When Bobby was in Pennsylvania, I wanted him to see this place too...not just for the natural beauty but because of what it meant to me. I had such great memories there as a child and I wanted to share them with someone who had quickly become one of the most important people in my life. It was a perfect day, too...and Worlds End continues to be a place of beginnings for me.
At the top of the Canyon Vista drive, you'll find a trail that leads to the "rock garden" Before this year, I hadn't... more travel advice
