With miles and miles of flat and wide trail, the D&L Trail is ideally suited for bike rides – especially long ones.  Therefore, it is no surprise that biking is the most popular activity on the D&L Trail. The classic ride on the D&L Trail is to bike the Lehigh Gorge State Park section.  Fortunately Pocono Biking, a D&L Trail Friendly Business, makes this an easy adventure for any level of bike rider.

With locations right along the D&L Trail in White Haven and Jim Thorpe, they have everything you need for a day on the trails.  From gear to gifts to bike rentals and shuttles, Pocono Biking is your one-stop shop to take care of all your needs.  Their bike shuttle trips are very popular with riders able to choose 10, 15, 25 or 36-mile options where you bike the slight downhill grade and get a ride back.  This makes a perfect trip for new bike riders to explore the trail and connect to nature following the D&L Trail and Lehigh River.  Want a unique D&L Trail experience? Take the Bike Train where you and your bike board the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway for a one-hour train ride before biking back to Jim Thorpe.

However, the D&L Trail is much more than the Lehigh Gorge State Park Section.  To truly experience the rich history and diverse landscapes of the D&L Trail you need to explore all three regions (Anthracite, Lehigh Valley, and Delaware Canal).  Pocono Biking has a four-day inn-to-inn guided ride that covers 138 miles of trail and has overnight stops in Jim Thorpe, Bethlehem, and New Hope. With a great trail, great towns, and great service this new trip will likely become another classic trip from Pocono Biking along the D&L Trail!
