Mountain Biking Lehigh Gorge Trail

***   Add a review
#100 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#3,543 in the world

Beautiful rail trail that stretches about 25 miles from Jim Thorpe to White Haven just beyond I-80. Can get boring as far as mountian biking goes but the scenery helps. If you are used to riding up and back is't bad and you can't really tell the difference between up hill and down. Plenty of great spots to stop and fish! There are shuttle services in Jim Thorpe that will take you to White Haven and let you ride down.

    This is the perfect trail for a family with kids to go riding. The trail is very smooth, with fine gravel, and very scenic with lot of shade. There are frequent stops for river entrance or waterfalls.

    The first half (10 miles) is the best part, while the last 5 miles 9out of the total 25 miles) are not that scenic.

    Easy, flat, scenic trail. Nice for the family with small children. NO, I repeat NO technical difficulty at all. Has some neet rock outcroppings to look at along the way.
