This beautiful hike follows along Sand Spring Run with views of waterfalls, rhododendron thickets, and unique rock formations. The trail is primarily used for hiking, running, and bird watching and is best used from March until October.
The trailhead and parking are available by the park office, or along PA 534 by the nature center and amphitheater. This trail is beautiful and seemed to change around every bend. Sand Spring Run flows alongside the entire trail.
From the visitor parking lot find the Shades of Death trailhead and follow the path along the stream. The trail will eventually climb up abruptly and run adjacent to Rt 534 briefly before dipping back down into the woods along the stream. Continuing will reveal many beautiful scenes along the water as well as lush grown and interesting rock formations. Ultimately you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful waterfall originating from a reservoir created by a stone wall. These are the remains of an old logging mill dating back to the early 1800s.

“This was the last place I would think one could try exotic meats like kangaroo and ostrich steaks! You don’t really think of a place with 50 gazillion choices of beer to choose from to offer such items…but those were on their long specials menu, and so of course we had to try. We had kangaroo steaks before so decided on the ostrich steak that was well grilled and very tender cooked to a medium rare. Also liked their crab dip and portobello mushrooms topped with sausage, bacon and cheese. The rib eye special was great as well and it was worth it. It was nice to be in such a high energy atmosphere.”

“A unique way to explore the town of Jim Thorpe and the surrounding area. Owner Barb is extremely knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area (and she seems to know everyone in town!) She’s entertaining in her descriptions, and the trip is a one-to-one personal guided tour. I had never ridden a motorcycle before and this was a comfortable introduction — not scary at all, no high speeds. My companion truly enjoyed the experience from the sidecar. I highly recommend Sidecar Tourz to anyone visiting the Jim Thorpe or Poconos area of Pennsylvania.”
