A real nice trail. Park your car in Jim Thorpe and take the bus with your bike to Whit hall. Enjoy your ride at times along the Lehigh river back to the town of J Thorpe. Once back reward yourself with a late lunch in this nice little town

Went out with the family on Memorial Day Weekend thinking it was gonna be more than just a flat trail ride on a dirt trail along the rail road tracks, we were looking to go on an offroad type of bike ride but nevertheless it was a nice simple family ride with an awesome view of the river below.

Excellent trail for what it is. Very flat and well-groomed hard surface with some very small gravel. Smooth enough for a road bike. Jim Thorpe and White Haven are the main entry points around here, but if you zoom in on it in Google Maps, you'll find multiple entry points with parking lots. I actually biked from my house to Hazleton Rails To Trails, then took a powerline trail and what looked like a trail on Google through the middle of nowhere, and entered the D&L north of Weatherly on Rockport Rd, where there is also a parking lot. I took the trail down to Jim Thorpe and met my family for the hike to Glen Onoko Falls. A memorable day to say the least, but highly recommended.

Very nice trail for bikes. We didn't have them when we took this trail but it was superb anyway. For many reasons really : The trail is along the river so it gives you constant breeze and of course water access if you need to rest and listen to the creek. Almost whole way the trail is covered with shade. Nice waterfalls along the way too.
I will definitely come back there with whole family on the bikes :) Check the pictures to have idea how the trail looks like.

Fairly easy trail. Did the section in Bethlehem. Parts are narrow, but it's not too bad

ran parts of this trail for a marathon. Nice surface, very pretty river views. Beautiful in the fall. Runs near private properties and some where kind of scary and seculded.
