Located in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, just two blocks from the Appalachian Trail, only minutes from the Delaware River and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. We specialize in Delaware River Trips, Bike Rental, Pedal and Paddle Tours, Bike n Brew Tours, guided hikes, and high quality outdoor adventure gear.

Since 2007, we have been providing people of all ability levels with outdoor adventures they will remember forever. Our retail store provides free National Park maps and hiking information. The shop specializes in ultra-light backpacking, and is a popular re-supply point for Appalachian Trail through hikers.

Our bike rental program was the first in the area. We provide mountain bike rentals and tours on the Joseph McDade Trail, located in the National Park just minutes from the shop. This newly constructed trail parallels the Delaware River for 30 traffic-free miles.

Delaware River trips take place on the calmest, most scenic part of the Delaware River in the National Park. Whether you choose to canoe, kayak, or raft down this beautiful river, you will find that drifting is the ultimate way to relax and see the area.
