Parking now is available at Paxtang Park

Night riding is permitted at the Parkway Trail System. SAMBA highly recommends never riding at night alone and riders to have two lights; one mounted on the handlebar and one mounted on the helmet. Due to having to ride city streets to connect the Cameron Parkway to the Paxtang Parkway riders should also have a flashing red light attached to the back of their bike when traveling on city streets after dusk.
