Pocono Whitewater Merchant's Day Adventure this year introduces the Pingauer Tours excursion. Pinzgauer is a high-mobility, all terrain military vehicle. Visitors escape to a private, mountain world with rugged terrain, hidden lakes, and beautiful vistas. The driver will chat about local lore and history as passengers Pinz up and down 10 miles of rugged trails, pass shear rock faces, and straight down the mountainside aptly named "Hades Hollow". Mid-way, there will be a break from all the off-road excitement for a short guided hike on "Bear Run" ending near "Rattlesnake Bluff". At "Blue Lake" they will be a snack and drink which are provided, take a few photos, and enjoy the breathtaking view. Fossil hunting is also a favorite on this tour. Free Pinzgauer Tours will be offered to Jim Thorpe Merchants every Tuesday and Wednesday the entire month of August. Those interested should call Nikki or Sky at 1-800-WHITEWATER (1-800-944-8392) for all the details and to make a reservation.
