Flagstaff Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Mauch Chunk Lake Park, located on the Lentz Trail Highway (SR 3012) between summit Hill and Jim Thorpe, offers 2,300 acres of fun-filled recreation for visitors to the Jim Thorpe area. A the heart of the park is the beautiful creek-fed Mauch Chunk Lake. The park has 85 camping sites, plus two large group sites. A boat launch and three large picnic pavilions are also located within the park, as well. A beach and a guarded swimming area are located close to the boat launch. Each June the park is host to the Jim Thorpe Mountain Bike Festival. The park has a number of well-maintained trails worth exploring. The hill climb up to Flagstaff Mountain will challenge most beginners and intermediate riders. At the top of Flagstaff Mountain, take a minute to enjoy the views of Jim Thorpe and the surrounding mountains. Terrain: singletrack, doubletrack, dirt and paved roads."
