    Trails around Kalahari Water Park

    I'm taking the family for a weekend stay at Kalahari. I'd like to sneak out for a dawn patrol ride before the kids wake up. Any good trails that are riding distance from the resort? I see that there is the Pocono Manor resort located very close. It looks like they have hiking and horse trails but I cannot find a trail map. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I know there are some trails near Camelback resort(Big Pocono State Park), but I'm not sure how far away it is from where you are staying. I'm guessing maybe a half hour. I've heard they might be off limits to biking but friends of mine have been hitting these trails for years.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    I think Jim Thorpe is your closest to real trails...
    ...but you'll have to travel a bit.


    Don't forget hunting season opens up big time after T-Giving day!!!!!!!!!!

    You can find lots of info by doing a "Jim Thorpe" search here on mtbr

    Thank you for the help fellas but I need to be hyper-local to Kalahari. My only chance of success is to slip out for a dawn patrol ride before the kiddies wake up and click a few miles out. I'm going to call the Pocono Manor directly and see if I can get the 411 on trails in the area. At the time of year we are going Camelback, is going to be covered in snow although as of last year they were not which was crazy! JT is on the radar for a weekend getaway with the wifey down the road. PA is such a great escape state, you guys have no idea how good it is over there from the NY side of things. Seriously looking for a lake house off Rt 80. Please PM if you know of something good.

    Well more good news. I called kalahari. They do a daily hike to some waterfall at 10 every morning. Inspired by this I called about a trail. They directed me to their partner resort, Pocono Manor. I called the sports center there and they did indeed claim to have an 11.5 mile trail. Perfect! I'll report back after the trip but I'll take some Jeep roads just to get some off road and alone time although I would prefer some gnar if available. They said you could buy a map for $5.00. This is why I love PA, still America, still great.

    That's good news, enjoy! Hope you got out before the snow. As of today 12/12/16 there are a few inches on the ground. Fat Bike might make it easier.
