Big Day Out
October 14, 2023
What do you get when you take a 23 mile bike ride, pair it with a short hike, and finish off with an 8 mile whitewater rafting trip?
Our BIG DAY OUT!
You will begin your day by checking in at our Pocono Whitewater Rafting Center. Then, you will be fitted for one of our Trek bicycle rentals and start your 23-mile bike ride on the Lehigh Gorge section of the D&L Rail Trail. When your ride is finished, you’ll enjoy your sub lunch along the banks of the Lehigh River in Jim Thorpe.
After lunch, your BIG DAY OUT continues in the Lehigh Gorge State Park with a scenic hike to a beautiful overlook of the Lehigh River in the Pocono Mountains of Jim Thorpe. You will descend back to the Lehigh River where whitewater rafts and equipment will be ready for your arrival.
Whitewater rafting will be the last leg of your adventure! The Lehigh rolls and bends as you go whitewater rafting. You’ll navigate rapids past the ruins of 18th-century dams, locks, and dwellings. Our professional rafting guides will accompany you every step of the way as you explore the Poconos.
A delicious dinner and roaring bonfire at our Pocono Whitewater Adventure Center await your return. Your first victory drink (beer or soda) will be on us! Finally, your day is complete and you can hang out around the bonfire and brag that you survived Pocono Whitewater’s BIG DAY OUT!
