Lehigh Gorge Trail Ride – Canals & Trains: Full Day
Transportation was the ‘gold mine’ for this area – canals and trains took coal and lumber to East Coast markets, which created enormous wealth here. This tour gives you a guided, interpretive 25-mile ride of the beautiful Lehigh Gorge trail, with a focus on the canal and railroad history of the area. Enjoy stops at historic sites, snack by the river, find great picture opportunities and finish with a tour of the amazing mansion of canal-boat-builder-turned-railroad-magnate Asa Packer. An all-day trip that gets you out into the wilderness, yet will amaze you with man’s desire and ability to dominate nature (or not!). You won’t just hear about what was accomplished in the Gorge, you’ll actually see and touch it – the JTX takes you to all the best spots!
"[the JTX tour was] a great way to spend the day, get to see beautiful landscape, learn about the history - in a low key way..." RG - Long Island
