Now, from the heart of the Poconos in White Haven, PA to the edge of the Pocono Plateau in Jim Thorpe, PA you will find one of the finest rail-trails in the world! (Ranked as one of the Top 100 in the country) This famous 26-mile bike trail cuts through 4,500 acres of dramatic river gorge forestry along the Lehigh River on a former rail and canal route. Grab your bike and board a shuttle in Jim Thorpe to cycle from the most northern point in White Haven to the southern point in Jim Thorpe, a gorgeous tree-line ride with excellent river views. Or, if you are looking for a shorter, 15-mile experience, pick up the trail in Rockport; or if the longer distance is what you crave then head on up to the new D&L Black Diamond Trailhead in Glen Summit which connects to the Lehigh Gorge State Park just before downtown White Haven, PA.
The entire route features river views on one side and miles worth of scattered waterfalls on the steep rock face on the other side. This 2-4% grade downhill offers an easy pedaling cadence. Also there is plenty of wildlife within the par including the majestic blue heron, our nation’s symbol the bald eagle, hawks, turkeys, geese, hundreds of bird species, deer, fox and beavers are commonly spotted on the river side. You also might encounter an occasional snake, lizard or later in the day a hungry bear going fishing! For nearly seven miles, the Reading and Northern Railroad parallels the trail. The rail line carries freight and seasonal tourist trains run by the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. We also offer the Jim Thorpe bike train goer a more economical bike rental at just $19.95 per day, then you just pay for the train ride itself and SAVE!
Just about 2 miles before you reach the town of Jim Thorpe, the trail comes to a parking lot and continues on, here is where you follow the main road out to a really cool feature of the trail, this (pic on left) converted iron railroad bridge that crosses the Lehigh River! Take a right over the bridge as it leads into downtown Jim Thorpe and the Visitors Center Parking lot. This is where we picked you up in the morning at or we will be picking you up at in the afternoon after your ride. The community of Jim Thorpe is retail therapy Poconos Style! Packed full of charming shops, restaurants and inns, but we think it’s highlight is, that it has several options for outdoor adventure fun like Poconos Mountain Biking right from the downtown! (The Jim Thorpe Bike Rentals must be returned by 5:00 PM.)
