Howdy! Along with the rest of my small local crew, been thinking about making another push to keep our best trails in shape. Everyone (except maybe the young bucks) knows our history here. Lots of challenging raw terrain with a nod to adventure riding. Most people who have ridden here have experienced our more publicly known trails (American Standard, Deer Path, etc). Few know the extent of what’s out there in addition to these. We’ve got some great technical singletrack and expert only descents, and it’s always a battle to keep them maintained.

The purpose of this thread is to gauge local, and maybe even regional, interest in our trails. Good things are happening in town regarding food, beer, music, coffee. We have some new County Commisioners as well. Our trails are as good as ever. We still lack the cycling hub that is needed. Anybody who wants to take a tour and/or help keep them running smoothly please chime in!

I’ll be interested to see if this gets a response...

Maybe paving 209 in Carbon and Monroe counties would be a good start to tourism.

I'm from almost 2 hours south of Jim Thorpe. I ride at Blue a fair amount in the summer. If you were organizing trail work on a certain weekend I would definitely come up and help. I would also be down for a tour of the trails. I haven't done any riding in the area other than at Blue. I usually just ride at Blue and then go through Jim Thorpe to paddle the Lehigh.

Yes to both! We'll schedule a workday soon and I'll post it here. I've been riding all "winter" this year... trails are in great shape!
