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.

Kayak the Lehigh River & Night Hike

Explore the beautiful Lehigh River by kayak on an 8-mile float trip through calm pools and exhilarating rapids.

After dinner (on-your-own), regroup for a night hike out on a local mountain for great star viewing and experiencing the woods in a totally different setting. You might be surprised how different things look from the river- and later, in the dark!
