Bike Train

All aboard the scenic bike train!

Step back in time and enjoy a relaxing train ride through the Lehigh Gorge for 25 miles, then pedal your bike back down to Jim Thorpe at your own pace along the Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail.

Your day begins in Jim Thorpe where you & 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. Here you and your bike will be dropped off at the Lehigh Gorge trailhead.

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.

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

Rain Date Policy

In case of inclement weather the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway website Pocono Biking website and Pocono Biking Facebook Page will be used to indicate the change of Bike Train dates due to adverse weather conditions. The websites & Facebook will be updated by 10:00 am on the Thursday morning prior the Bike Train weekend. If Bike Trains start running and the weather suddenly turns bad, the Bike Trains will continue to run as scheduled.  If inclement weather is in the forecast, we strongly encourage you to check these website for rain date updates prior to leaving your home.  If the LGSRY or Pocono Biking websites do not indicate any rain date changes, then all Bike Trains for that weekend are operating as scheduled.

If your Bike Train date is changed due to inclement weather, the trains will operate at the same times out of Jim Thorpe Station the weekend after the original postponed date.  For example:  If the Saturday Bike Trains are canceled, the following Saturday would be the rain date.  If this accommodation does not work for you, please call 610-562-2102 to exchange your tickets to a later date.  Although there are no refunds on tickets purchased, Bike Train tickets are good forever until used on a future Bike Train.
