We rode from Rockport to White Haven and back. Was a ton of fun. Trail in good shape. Met others in bunches...then no one for a long stretch...then others. Nice ride. One biker said a bear crossed the trail about a mile ahead of us. Ranger came by said it should be fine. We rode a bit faster for the next mile and half...no bear in sight. Fun ride. Would do it again. Rode from Rockport to WHite Haven...up hill...slightly the whole trip. Wanted to be going downhill for return ride.
We also rode from Rockport to Jim THorpe a cpl of weeks ago. Nice ride. Would def do again. Want to try from Jim Thorpe to White Haven and back again....
We started in White Haven today. It took us a little to find the parking lot but we made it and enjoyed a great trail and beautiful scenery. The trail is very well maintained. What a joy!!!
We caught a shuttle from Blue Mountain bike shop up to White Haven and rode the 26 miles back to Jim Thorpe. Even tho the temp was in the low 90s, it was pretty comfortable riding--some shade helped (more in the afternoon than the morning). Scenery was nice as described by other reviewers. Trail was in great condition. Ride from trail end into Jim Thorpe had two big hills and not much shoulder on the roads. All in all, it was a great ride--took about 3 hours with only 3-4 short stops for breaks or to see scenery.
My biking route started from Rockport and continued down toward Jim Thorpe.
The scenery along the route was really beautiful and the weather cooperated. The route is really well maintained and informative.
