    The coal region basically refers to a block anthracite-rich counties in Northeastern PA. In my case, I'm close to parts of Schuylkill, Carbon, and Luzerne county. If you're familiar with Jim Thorpe, that's a coal region hot spot in Carbon county. hah

    What trail/trails are you riding in JT, and how long are you planning on riding?

    Planning on riding for 3 hours or so.It could be 1 long or a couple of short rides.I'm flexible.I just have to be back in Kunkletown for a family thing around 2pm.I was looking to do a ride on the broad mountain and would welcome a guide.I have ridden the area a few times but usually do Twin Peaks because I know the route and am alone.

    I just rode the American Standard last week for the first time on the broad, however I had a guide. I don't really know the trail that well yet to guide somebody. The only other trail I've ridden in JT is the lung buster which is extremely technical and rocky throughout the second half. A lot of hike-a-bike sections.
