Now, from the heart of the Poconos in White Haven, PA to the edge of the Pocono Plateau in Jim Thorpe, PA and beyond you will find one of the finest rail-trails in the world! (Ranked as one of the Top 100 in the country) This famous 25-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 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 Trail Head in Glen Summit which connects to the Lehigh Gorge State Park just before downtown White Haven, PA. Call us at: 570-899-0400 for pricing and availability.
The entire route of the world famous Lehigh Gorge Trail 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 park including the majestic blue heron, our nation’s symbol the bald eagle, hawks, turkeys, geese and hundreds of other water fowl and 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 $24.95 per day or $19.95 for kids bikes, then you just pay for the train ride itself and SAVE!
IMPORTANT HINT: Lehigh Gorge Trail users, just about 3 miles before you reach the town of Jim Thorpe, the trail comes to a parking lot and continues on for about a half a mile over a wooden bridge. This is where you follow the trail alongside the main road out to a really cool feature of the trail, this (pic on left) is a converted iron railroad bridge that crosses the Lehigh River! Take a right over the bridge as it leads into downtown Jim Thorpe and take some cool pictures and or head into town. Be sure to come back across it and turn right to get to the Jim Thorpe Bike Shuttle pickup spot at least 15 minutes prior to shuttle time.
