September 20th & 21st – 9am and 12pm

Bike and Train in Jim Thorpe PAYour day begins in Jim Thorpe where you and your bike will board the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway for a one hour ride as the train swings onto the former Lehigh Valley main line and passes Glen Onoko, the southern gateway to the Lehigh Gorge State Park.

While you sit back, relax and take in the outstanding scenery: the train will follow the winding Lehigh River for 25 miles, rounding curve after curve until you reach the village of White Haven. You’ll conveniently disembark at the Lehigh Gorge trailhead and Pocono Whitewater will hand you your bike.

Once at the trailhead, pedal at your own pace down the Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail for 25 miles back to Jim Thorpe.  Along the way, you’ll pass canal remnants, swim spots, scenic overlooks and railroad trestles. Remember your camera. The many sparkling waterfalls provide great photo opportunities.

If you don’t have a bike or don’t want the hassle of bringing your own, no worries – just rent one of our Trek bicycles.

Rates:

Train Ride/Shuttle with your own bike rates: $21.99 per person

Train Ride/Shuttle with bike rental rates:  $39.99 per person

 

Advance tickets/reservations are required and can be made by calling Pocono Biking at: 570-325-3654
