This is a bike trail. Sure, you can safely hike on it. But it’s fully sunny and pretty boring. There are a couple nice spots to relax by the river, but this trail has little else going for it.

Nice easy flat 12 mile trail. Well maintained and nice views. Not to mention the drive into Jim Thorpe is beautiful as well! Could easily take family. There’s fishing too. If you park at the very end where the directions take you on All Trails you will go about a mile and a half then pass through a parking lot to the rest of the trail. I did this on bike today and doubled back to add miles to make 20 total. Took less than 2 hours.

Nice and flat well taken care of very busy . A lot of bikes so if your hiking just beware. Other then that it was great. From parking lot of train station to the gorge state park bridge is 1.2 away.

My new favorite trail!! I brought my 2 senior dogs, one of whom has arthritis, and this trail is a wonderful route with gorgeous scenery that’s easy on their joints. They were in heaven sniffing all the stuff and doing all the things - which included frolicking in the river (with me holding on to them by their leashes, of course. The Lehigh isn’t a calm river). We’ll most definitely be going back frequently!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
