    Poconos trails?

    i'm heading out to the Poconos next month for a weekend with the little lady and some friends and i'd like to bring my bike if i can. i'm not familiar with the area, i just know that it's fairly touristy. can anyone tell me if it's worth my while to bring my mtb bike? i have any details yet about where exactly we're staying, but i'll post it as soon as i know.

    What type of trails are you looking for; Single Track, Double Track, Rail Trails? We have all types in the area. Check out the NEPA STICKY in this forum for a bunch of trails in the area. Once you know where you are staying and what type of trails you are looking to ride we can give you more precise options. In simple, yeah it would be worth it to bring your bike :-)

    If you are refering to Towamensing in Albrightsville, then Jim Thorpe would probably be you best choice. Check out http://jttrails.wordpress.com/ for more info on the trails in Jim Thorpe.

    Broad Mt. Loop and Twin Peaks

    These are what I would recommend for intermediate rides in the JT area. Coal Cracker is also a good easier ride. See the maps page on the site below. The trails are in great shape right now and the weekend should be good. Enjoy.

    Check out Mcdade trail in Pike county, Northeast Poconos. It borders route 209. I live about 5 miles away from the northern section of the trails, i ride it atleast once every weekI. Nice flat open trail to some single track sections.

    The Jim Thorpe recommendations listed above may be your best bet, based on your vacation destination. There are more trail options if you are willing to drive a little.
