the Jim Thorpe eXperience

Snowshoe the Poconos!
Go with a JTX Guide


1/2 DAY GUIDED SNOWSHOE TOUR

Once we have 8+ inches of snow, a JTX snowshoe tour allows you to eXperience the ‘white season’ for a whole new perspective on Hiking & Nature. At the same time you get to try a new, exhilarating activity. Similar to hiking, with a little more ‘cardio’ but once you pick it up, snowshoeing is actually more efficient. During our trip, we’ll get the basics of the sport, have some ‘practice’ time then hit the trails…and beyond! We enjoy the fields and woods while discussing local history and ecology. You might be surprised how different things look in the winter- and if conditions are right, in the dark!

$60 per person- (includes snowshoes/poles/glasses, water, snack)

Available daily before 1pm by advance reservation, conditions permitting


Full Moon Snowshoe Trip

A whole new way to experience an exhilarating activity – in the dark with the full moon lighting the way. For this trip, we start before dusk to get used to the activity, then as it gets dark we use moonlight to enjoy our excursion. We’ll choose a location based on snow/moonlight/time/conditioning/etc. During our trip, we’ll discuss a bit of the ecology of the area, and any history that’s of interest. Otherwise, we’ll just enjoy the night. You might be surprised how different an activity is when it’s dark!
