Start in Easton, PA and take 611 north along the river for a while. It will stray away from the river for a little while but just make sure you stay on 611 north (watch the signs). Cruise up to the Delaware Water Gap, going through Portland and up to Stroudsburg. Run through a little suburbia until you reach Tannersville, the outlet Mecca of the Pocono's. Turn left onto 715 South. At the end of 715 and turn right onto rte. 209. 209 is a run through the rural landscape, your heading towards Jim Thorpe, PA. Follow 209 south into Jim Thorpe, PA. This ride culminates when you have lunch at Roadies in Jim Thorpe (325 Maury Road, Jim Thorpe, PA 18229) and enjoy the views. Now you can take the highway home or reverse the route. (about 3 hrs to travel this trip).
Rivers, Mountains, Old towns. Very nice! Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Jim Thorpe is an awesome town known as the Switzerland of PA and the view from Roadies Restaurant (see below) is fantastic.
Mostly very good, a few obligatory rough spots but very minor. New pavement for several miles on 611. 715 turns into a great road full of twisty's on a nicely paved surface, a real blast.
The Riverside Bar and Grille in Easton, PA is a good bike stop on weekends. Plenty of gas stop/pit stop options after Stroudsburg. Tannersville is worth a stop if you want to do some shopping. It's the outlet Mecca of the Pocono's. Roadies Restaurant has good food and a great view! Watch for deer...and bears...and ground hogs...and rabid shoppers!
