Lehigh Gorge (PA) – 2012 & 2014
This 25-35 mile excursion is part of the D&L Trail that will soon run all the way from Bristol to Wilkes-Barre, PA (165 miles!). Lehigh Gorge is along the way when I travel to see my family near Wilkes-Barre, so I often throw my folding 26″ hybrid into the trunk and ride on the way up or back. Watch out for timber rattlesnakes. I saw one stretched out across the trail last summer!
During the summer, there is a bike train. It’s a scenic ride that carries you and your bike from Jim Thorpe up to White Haven. The 25 miles back is downhill all the way.
Until recently, the trail was only passable from Jim Thorpe north up to White Haven and Mountain Top. However, a new bridge will open up the section south from Jim Thorpe to Weissport in the summer of 2019.
