    Cool-blue Rhythm Pennsylvania Bikepacking thread

    Here's a link to a developing new trail in Pa great for BP:
    The Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor - Where America Was Built

    Luzerne county just struck a deal with the state to take over the Seven Tubs nature area near Bear Creek Pa, and this will allow construction of a great new access area along this trail as well as further mileage heading towards the northern end point in Wilkes Barre.
    Moon Lake Park, Seven Tubs transferred to state control - News - Citizens' Voice

    Just one town on the way is Jim Thorpe, and if you have never been please visit this great town you won't be sorry. In the 1980s JT was the mecca for mt biking with plenty of local hangouts and business, and still prospers today.

    Carbon County looks to build pedestrian bridge over Lehigh River in Jim Thorpe - News - Republican Herald

    I will add more info as time goes on...

    Thanks for the heads up and links. Great to see stuff happening in the Eastern half of the country. I attended Lehigh Univ. and spent many weekends bouncing around Jim Thorpe!

    I live near the Allegany National Forest in NWPA

    There are likely hundred's of miles, forest service roads

    Besides the single track, XC Ski, etc etc

    There is a nice little ,, refreshingly old school, bicycle shop in Warren Pa. Owners name is Aaron per memory

    Nice area for wild Brook Trout fly fishing as well

    Note - Black Bear population is very high currently and there are some Timber Rattle snakes around certain areas
