Come experience two picturesque rail-trails in one great day; riding 30 miles total on the Nor-Bath and D&L Rail-Trails!
You’ll pick up your morning shuttle at the Pocono Biking Jim Thorpe trail head store and be dropped off at Jacksonville Park, the top of the Nor-Bath Rail-Trail located near Northampton, PA. Your eyes are sure to stay busy as you pedal at your own pace along the former site of the Northampton & Bath Railroad. As the Nor-Bath trail winds through the beautiful Lehigh Valley countryside, you’ll pass farm fields, forests, creeks, and ride through small tunnels and bridges. Along the way you’ll also pass by Bethlehem’s Bicentennial Park and the historic ruins of Fort Allen-Brown.
Where the Nor-Bath trail ends, your second journey begins on the Lehigh Gap section of the D&L Trail. This section of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is packed full of history, wildlife, and sprawling nature. Following the Lehigh River all the way back to Jim Thorpe, you’ll cycle through the Lehigh Gap and famous Appalachian Trail, pass historical remains such as locks & canals, and ride over the new Mansion House Bridge in downtown Jim Thorpe, built specifically for cyclists & pedestrians. This Twin Trail ride is professionally guided to help you navigate the multiple trails and highlight all the attributes these two trails have to offer.
