ALL ABOARD THE SCENIC BIKE TRAIN!
Step back in time and enjoy a relaxing 25 mile train ride through the Lehigh Gorge. Then, pedal your bike back down to Jim Thorpe at your own pace along the Lehigh Gorge Rail-Trail.
Begin your day in Jim Thorpe, where you and your bike will board the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. You will enjoy 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. You’ll round 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 D& L 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.
If you don’t have a bike or don’t want the hassle of bringing your own, no worries – just rent one of our Trek bicycles.
The Bike Train runs at 9AM and 12PM today.
