Pedal through the wild gems of Pennsylvania and New Jersey on this picturesque bicycling adventure. Bicycle a variety of trails with a former National Park Service Ranger who illuminates the area’s natural and cultural highlights. During the week, instructors review basic bike maintenance and the creation of the National Recreation Area and the Rails-to-Trails program.


Highlights

• Ride along the scenic Delaware River in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Worthington State Forest.
• Switch over to converted railroad lines in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Gorge State Park and New Jersey’s Paulinskill Valley Trail.
• Experience the historic town of Jim Thorpe, often call the “Switzerland of America” for its beautiful scenery and architecture.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
