Join Pocono Biking for a 2 day overnight bike package where you’ll spend two nights in the heart of downtown Jim Thorpe and experience up to 57 miles of bike riding on the D&L Trail. Check in to the Inn at Jim Thorpe the night before your ride and take time to explore the quaint shops, museums and history of Jim Thorpe, PA. The next morning, enjoy a delicious breakfast at the Broadway Grille and gear up for your day of bicycling. You can choose between the full Lehigh Gorge (25 miles) or the full Monty (36 miles) trails. On your first day, we will shuttle you to the north end of the rail trail. You’ll enjoy a leisurely ride through the Lehigh Gorge State Park and end back at the the Inn at Jim Thorpe, Pocono Biking’s lodging partner.
On day two, you’ll start with a hearty breakfast at the Broadway Grille then take a short walk to our bike shop, just a few buildings away in the historic district of Jim Thorpe. You will then be shuttled to the newly completed Lehigh Gap section of The D&L Trail. You will ride at your own pace for 21 miles along the Lehigh River as it bends through small, river towns. Along the way you will cross the Appalachian Trail, pass the Lehigh Gap Nature Center and explore the ruins of the Lehigh Canal. Your rail trail biking ride ends when you cross the newly completed Mansion House Pedestrian Bridge and arrive back at your car in Jim Thorpe.
