If you like a challenge, you’ll love this hike. It is a steep climb over washouts, rocks, ledges, and boulders; but when you reach the top, you are rewarded with a view of two awe-inspiring waterfalls—two of the best in the state. The return trip is on a forest path. There are a few places in Pennsylvania where outdoor buffs can do just about anything they’ve got the energy for. The Lehigh Gorge–Jim Thorpe area is just such a place: there is Class III whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Lehigh River, bicycling on 25 miles of abandoned railroad grade that runs alongside the river, mountain biking in the steep and rugged terrain, fishing for stocked trout near the Francis E. Walter Dam, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter, and of course hiking.
