DETWEILER PARK TRAIL DEVELOPMENT- CALL TO ACTION!

The Dauphin County Parks & Recreation department has worked for years to purchase a tract of land now known as Detweiler Park in Dauphin at the base of Peter’s Mountain. SAMBA has been asked to serve on the steering team for the Master site planning process for the park to represent the interests of local mountain bikers. We hope to work with the County to develop a truly unique riding experience just 10 miles north of the State Capital. Currently the park is open to hiking so check it out on foot and join us in dreaming about the possibilities!

Elizabethtown Mountain Bike Team Trail Complete

CONGRATULATIONS! to Elizabethtown Mtb team for completing their trail yesterday! Great job by the coaches, parents and team members to establish a 1.1 mile trail adjacent to Bear Creek school and the E-town fairgrounds. The trail will serve as a practice trail for the school’s NICA race team and also as a great place to try mountain biking in a safe, school setting for beginners and kids. SAMBA is excited about working with NICA and the E-town team’s accomplishment and proud to have participated by providing information, teaching sustainable trail building and coaching the crew through the process. We also donated some trail tools so that the team can maintain the trail going forward. Great work and good luck with the upcoming NICA race series....
