Hop on the Bike Train and step back in time. 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.
If one day of biking is enough for you - that's great! Head on home and call it a day. If you want more adventure, stay overnight at Hotel Switzerland (or lodging of your choice) and continue back to the Lehigh Valley with the rest of us.
Your day begins 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 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.
Hotel Switzerland is located right in the heard of Jim Thorpe. Enjoy dinner at Molly Maguire's Pub, located on the first floor, or try any of Jim Thorpe's famed restaurants.
