This Rails to Trails route is appx 36 miles 1 way. We'll split the mileage in half and do 2 out and back days of appx 30 miles round trip with any additional miles on sun morning. The trip is actually scheduled for 6-4/6-7. Thur and sun will be travel days (6,5 hours) for us coming from Va.
The terrain is mostly flat to 2% grade. We are camping 3 nights at Mauch Chunk Lake. Total camping fees will be appx $20/$30 per person. Planning to have 2 breakfast and probably 2 suppers in camp with 1 restaurant supper. Everyone will chip in on food that I'll probably buy ahead of time. Unfortunately I can't accommodate special diet needs. You'd need to provide your own meals. I've led AC rides for appx 2 years and usually this works well. Most of us will be on hybrid or mt bikes.
