My husband and I rented bikes at the location in White Haven ay the start of the trail along the Lehigh River. The location was difficult to find because they have no real address there and are located in the back of a small plaza. We found it after asking several locals and turning into the plaza to ask directions at the. Rite Aid drug store. The Trek bikes were great and provided a comfortable ride. We rode 11 miles slightly downhill through partly shaded woods. We could see the river through some trees. There were some benches and picnic tables along the way.
We took a leisurely ride which an hour and a half. We passed a waterfall where you could get wet and cool off. Because it was during the week there was only one shuttle from Rockport at 5 pm, so we had to bike back uphill. It is only a 2% grade,but after 11miles a child or novice would be quite tired! We should have just gone on farther downhill where more shuttle times were available. The entire trail is 60 miles long. The young man at the office in White Haven was great. He was polite and veracity helpful with tips. It is a wonderful experience not to be missed! We spent about 3 to 3 1/2 hours and it cost about $60.00 for the two of us.





Bring more than enough water for the day! There isn't anywhere to get some until Rockport which also has bathrooms.

Have used this place before and always had a good experience. I did the 25 mile Lehigh Gorge Trail and it was a fantastic day and the people at Pocono Biking were friendly, organized, and very informative. Their bikes are well maintained or you can use your own. I can 't say enough about Lehigh Gorge, you can stop and eat a packed lunch along the way, there are waterfalls and overlooks for plenty of photo ops, and Pocono Biking will explain that before your trip.

The Lehigh Gorge Trail is a real gem. Very scenic and historic. It's pancake flat, actually an imperctible downhill. It follows the Lehigh river very closely and has many places worth stopping to take pictures. Be sure to do the full 25 miles, the best part of the trail is the first 10 miles. Bring plenty of water and snacks there are no towns along the way. This outfitter has it down to a science, they have facilities at both ends and are both knowledgeable and accommodating. You can park across the street and train tracks in Jim Thorpe and take their shuttle up to White Haven to begin your adventure. Plan on an extra ten bucks to pay for parking, it's just the way it is. However you'll end your trip in that parking lot. It couldn't be easier. The town of Jim Thorpe is pretty cool. Some fancy restaurants mixed with some reasonably priced pubs makes it accessible for all budgets. The town has a unique vibe and embraces the outdoor person and the shopper/tourist alike. If you'll need overnight accommodation on a weekend book well in advance.

We selected Pocono Biking for our 25 mile ride this past weekend mainly because they offered an 11am shuttle (approx $18 a person).

The paperwork was quick and painless.
The staff was efficient and friendly.
We used our own bikes and they were carefully transported via trailer.

Bonus: a female staff member noticed our tire pressure was low and pumped us up. That really is going the extra mile!

The ride was AMAZING!
I would definitely use them again!

Great trail - was quite easy. I did the 25 mile ride and it took me about 4 hours. The staff was quite helpful and the bikes were in good condition.
