The Deer Path

This is an awesome advanced level trail with lots of technical singletrack. It's starting point is the same as the Weekend Warrior and Broad Mountain Loop, and if I want a good workout I combine it with one of those trails. Allow at least an hour for this short trail.

Start: From downtown Jim Thorpe, take Route 209 South to Route 93. Bear right onto Route 93 and follow for 3.5 miles. Park in the second parking lot on the right side of the road.
