Hike The Best of Hickory Run

 

Hickory Run State Park has many beautiful areas, and we’ll pick from several options for the day's exploration: A short hike to a waterfall for a warm-up, then there are several great trail loops overlooking the Lehigh Gorge – we’ll choose one based on time and other hikes. A visit to Boulder Field is a must – we can hike to it or drive there (so we can hike more of the other trails). This hiking tour is a great way to see the best of Hickory Run – a really nice park with a surprising history – and still be back around 4pm for a rest before dinner.

Kayak the River and Hike the Falls

Water, Water, Everywhere!  A great 2-day adventure tour featuring two of the wettest and most beautiful parts of the Jim Thorpe area:  the amazing Glen Onoko waterfall hike and a kayak trip on the the bottom (3rd) section of the Lehigh River Gorge.  One day we'll ascend the challenging waterfall trail in Glen Onoko, with its 4 main falls and plethora of cascades, enjoying the cold water as it splashes down from above us.  There's a surprising amount of history and legend involved in the Glen Onoko hike, which is only told by JTX.
