Trails along the river, etc.

On the Kingston side of the Susquehanna River just across the Market Street bridge, you'll find a long trail that is perfect for walking, jogging, biking or rollerblading.

Wilkes-Barre is also very close to a major Nascar speedway, the Pocono International Raceway. The track is a 2.5 mile, non-oval (i.e. not excruciatingly boring to watch) track, so someday I might actually consider going to a race here. Pocono is located south of exit 284 (old exit 43) of Interstate 80, just east Wilkes-Barre. Take I-80 to exit 284, and head south on SR 115 for a couple of miles. The track will be to your left, on Long Pond Road.

Theme: Biking
