Custom Hiking Tours


If one of our pre-planned tours is not what you are looking for, the JTX hiking guide service can customize a hike to your ability and the trail characteristics you like.

Here are some options:

* Upper Switchback Trail (easy/moderate)

* Appalachian Trail (difficult)

* Lehigh Canal Path (easy)

* Switchback & Ridge Trails loop (moderate)

* Miner's Loop (difficult)

* Shoreline & Ridge Trails loop (difficult)

* Mt. Pisgah climb (difficult)

* Hickory Run State Park trails

   and more...


EQUIPMENT: All hikers are expected to wear appropriate clothing and (most importantly) sturdy footwear such as hiking shoes or sneakers with lugged soles.  Tennis or basketball shoes, or any flat-soled shoes, are NOT recommended.  Please also plan to bring a pack with water, snacks, sunscreen, bug repellent, camera, any necessary medical supplies, etc.  Tell your JTX tour guide if you need to borrow a pack - we have several sizes available.


** Note that although times are flexible, there is one tour given per day – the first reservation is what determines the day’s tour. Call to find out what tour is going on a specific day, or if you’re planning ahead reserve the trip you want to take! This is especially important on custom tours!
