Shuttle Services  Let us take the hard work out of biking.  Our shuttle service can drop you off at the top of the trail where you will ride along a gentle downhill back to our shop.  Shuttles are provided to The Lehigh Gorge (15 or 25 miles) and The Switchback Trail (9 miles), which passes right by Mauch Chunk  Lake. For your safety, our experienced shuttle drivers will give a bike clinic before you embark on your ride.  While there, stop by The Camp Store at Boat Launch A and enjoy a refreshing drink or a take a relaxing kayak or canoe ride for an hour or so.

 Maps & Trails    Choose from the easy ( but incredibly scenic ) "rails-to-trails" ride through the Lehigh Gorge.  Or, for a more varied outing try the historic Switchback Trail - an eighteen mile loop you can access just a block from historic Jim Thorpe.  For the more advanced, singletrack-seeking enthusiast, check out David Matsinko's guide book with details on 20 area trails, or contact our experienced staff for the region's best selection of trail maps to your own self-guided adventure. There are no trail fees but you will need a map to successfully follow the trails - most are NOT marked.  If you want an easy grade or extreme downhill - we'll get you there!

X-Country Skiing - Hiking - Snowshoeing some of these trails are excellent for these activities also.
