The Jim Thorpe bike shuttle pickup location is half way down the access road inside the Glen Onoko area of the Lehigh Gorge State Park. The exact spot is the Bicycle Concession Shuttle Pickup area of the parking lot, which is pictured below about a half mile into the park from the entrance. If you reach the main parking lot across the wooden bridges, you have gone too far, turn around and go back through the parking lot past the Rust Colored Railroad bridge until you see the signage pictured below, our Gold Colored Dodge Grand Caravan and Orange Safety Cone sitting next to it.
PLEASE READ: VIP Shuttle Service bikers in the AM do NOT pass this old railroad bridge! 5:00 PM Shuttle Service Bikers: near the end of your amazing journey to Jim Thorpe, you reach this historic converted railroad bridge. The VIP Bike Shuttle Service pickup spot is just past this on the right side of the road near a picnic table and parking area with Bicycle Concession Pick-up signage (pictured above) to let you know where you are at.
A $60 return shuttle fee will be charged for missed shuttles.
Please don’t say you didn’t know where we are meeting or couldn’t find this spot. You can call or text us at anytime when lost.
