In early October we spent a week on the Pine Creek and enjoyed the rail trails in northern Pennsylvania. We continued our enjoyment of the fall colors and rail trails in late October with a day trip to the D & L Rail Trail which goes through the Lehigh River Gorge State Park.
The trail runs along the Lehigh River.
River on one side, colorful trees on the other
Excursion trains go through the gorge, also
The rail trail starts in the very scenic town of Jim Thorpe which is nestled at the base of the mountains
A great place to visit for riding trains, hiking, biking or just enjoying a scenic small town.

Looks like a great place to visit, for many reasons!
Beautiful pictures once again. Did you see a black bear?
We go geocaching, I have to put this on my list of places to visit.
Very pretty area of the state. In addition to the rail trails, which we favor, there are also mountain biking trails that the younger generation enjoys.
