Big Day Out

Bike, Hike & Raft the Lehigh Gorge In one day!

If you’re ready for a BIG adventure…a day you’ll brag about with your friends and family…then our BIG DAY OUT is for you!

You’ll begin the day with a hearty breakfast to charge you up for the day ahead.  Following breakfast, your excursion will begin via Trek mountain bike as you cruise between the 1000 foot walls of the Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail to the famous Glen Onoko in Jim Thorpe where you will relax by the river and enjoy your tasty lunch.

After lunch, your BIG DAY OUT continues with a scenic hike to an abandoned railroad tunnel with beautiful overlooks of the Lehigh River.  You will descend back to the Lehigh River where rafts and equipment will be ready for your arrival as you begin whitewater rafting on the final leg of your adventure! The Lehigh rolls and bends as you navigate rapids past the ruins of 18th century dams, locks, and dwellings. Our friendly, well-trained guides will accompany you every step of the way.

BUT WAIT…your Big Day Out doesn’t end yet…

A delicious dinner and roaring bonfire at our Whitewater Rafting Adventure Center await your return, complete with a BIG mug to fill with a frothy beverage of your choice. The mug is yours to keep as a souvenir to prove to your friends and family that you survived Pocono Whitewater’s BIG DAY OUT!
