The name Loyalsock is taken from the Indian phrase "Lawi-Saquick," meaning middle creek, or flowing between Muncy Creek and Lycoming Creek. Loyalsock Creek has its start in Wyoming County and ends at Montoursville, where it empties into the Susquehanna River. The Loyalsock Trail, a wilderness footpath, runs from PA 87, 10 miles north of Montoursville, to U.S. 220 at Ringdale, a distance of about 59 miles. The trail parallels the creek, mostly following ridges, but at times passing mountain streams, waterfalls, lakes, and ponds. The Loyalsock Trail is known for its many fine vistas. The Loyalsock Trail is maintained by the Alpine Club of Williamsport. The group marks the main trail with yellow discs with a red LT in the center. Side trail markers are painted yellow with a red X. Lead-in trails are marked with blue metal discs. White-marked trails are not brushed. In cooperation with DCNR, sections of this trail are maintained, in part, by volunteers from the Alpine Club of Williamsport.
