Jim Thorpe is one of the most scenic and picturesque towns in the southern Pocono mountains. The weather forecast calls for sun and temperatures up to 65 so we should experience Jim Thorpe at its very best, - and set in beautiful fall colors! Once we get there please enjoy the quaint town and take a ride on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway, where century-old coaches powered by diesel engines take passengers into Lehigh Gorge State Park. There are departures every hour starting at 10am. Tickets can only be purchased at the station on the day.
While Jim Thorpe is open all day long, parking tends to be hard-to-impossible to come by in the busy-season (which is when we are going). There have been numerous reports (thank you Bryan Schmotzer!) of traffic congestion and no available parking the past Saturday and with the weather forecast looking great, this coming weekend is likely to offer more of the same.
We will therefore meet 45 min EARLIER than originally planned. To get in the group photo please be at the train station at 9.15am. That should allow anyone driving to find parking in the large municipal parking lot to the right after the train station, and for those who wants to ride the train to get a ticket.
To allow extra time for slow traffic and the earlier start, the car-pool will leave from Panera in Exton at 7.20am. Please send email to email@example.com if you would like to ride - or drive - with the pool by Thursday 10/20/2022 at the latest.
