Details

This section follows the canal towpath from the town of Weissport to a dead end, across the river from Jim Thorpe. A new trailhead in Weissport provides parking and access to this section. The trail offers views of the river, the trout-filled canal, lock and building remnants, and forested mountain slopes.

The 2.7 miles north of the trailhead were recently resurfaced and are in excellent condition for biking and walking. The rest of the trail is bikable and walkable but with a more rugged surface. Currently, the trail dead ends at the Jim Thorpe waste water treatment plant, and there is no access to Jim Thorpe or points north. A proposed pedestrian bridge to link this section with downtown Jim Thorpe is currently in the design phase.
