It is a good place for biking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. I found it boring for hiking - the scenery is monotonous and the terrain is just flat.

Flat, easy terrain for biking. My 8 year old daughter easily completed the 22 mile trek from Rockport to White Haven and back. I would've like to see more of the scenic river, but there aren't really any clearings to get a good view from the trail. There were several side hiking trails though that appeared to lead down to the river so we will definitely be back to check out some of those.

It's fun to bike down and take a shuttle back. I sometimes stay the night in JT and go back the next day. There's a swimming hole toward the end of the trail, also.

We started in Jim Thorpe and hiked the DL trail up to Glen Onoko Falls base. We never made it to the top but, plan to do it later in the year. It had beautiful views and very historic scenes to view and take in, from an abandon train tunnel to many scenic views

I biked the gorge from White Haven to Jim Thorpe and I'm waiting for the remainder of the trail to go in service. It's a great ride to just get out and go!!

This is a wonderful trail for casual rides. Great scenery along the river, a few waterfalls, and historic information on the trail side signs.

The grade is so minor that most people don't notice it until it is time to turn around. In my opinion, if you plan to ride round trip start at Jim Thorpe for rides of more than about 15 miles, otherwise start at Rockport... either way, start out riding north so that you are going downhill on the second half of the ride.

The area's best rail trail ride!
