This was a fun bike ride. Great views. We took our 8 year old. He would've rather done the 15 mile ride but he survived 25 miles. Fun day!

Had the full gorge (25 miles) trip - great scenery, but the last 6-8 miles has many ruts that could cause the non-vigilant biker to wreck. Bus ride (old school bus) had 46 adults crammed in tugging as many bikes behind. Drive and staff are...More

Although it has been a few years since I have biked the trails around Jim Thorpe, it was always the best with the best views around!

The shuttle service was very efficient and great employees, to make it a smooth ride up the gorge. The trail is very scenic as you follow the river the entire 26 miles. Very mild terrain makes it an easy ride for all ages and abilities.

We decided upon the 25 mile trail trip as the guides said there was more to see further up the trail. Personally, we thought the trail as a whole was pretty boring. Mostly trees and rocks. It is advertised as a 2% grade but take...More

Hello! Sorry for the delay! I didn't get any notifications for this question. To answer briefly, the 26 mile ride from White Haven to Jim Thorpe takes roughly 2-3 hours. It's a constant 2% downgrade on a very smooth trail... More
