    Jim Thorpe

    If you only have a weekend to spend what trials do you recommend? What camp sites are the best / most affordable?

    DaveGT101, did you figure out that creak in your Liquid. I did but the answer is not a good one.

    Where to stay for a weelend in Jim Thorpe?

    To be honest, I recommend hooking up w. a local and having them show you the goods. Given the nature of things today in JT, it's the only way.

    Sure - back in the day - it was easy: Hit American Standard, Deer Path, Bob's Option etc. Betty, too. You can probably still do Twin Peaks...maybe? But, like I said, ask a local. I get the feeling that there's quite a bit of new stuff to be savored, IF you ask nice and private-like. JTTC might be able to help.

    depends on what you are after...

    If you are looking for technical singletrack then yes, local knowledge is key, if you are looking for more of an endurance ride then Twin Peaks, BM Loop or Coal Cracker are good. There are some new trails but you would need a guide to find them. Depending whether or not it's a race weekend I might be able to go with you, or I might be able to connect you with another local. Mauch Chunk Lake Park is a good place to camp, former home of MBW. Email me at jttrails@hotmail.com for maps of the classic trails.
