Susquehanna Area Mountain Bike Association (SAMBA)


Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Valley trail building and mountain biking advocates. We are a non-profit group that is open to anyone who is interested in building, maintaining and supporting shared use trails in central PA.
SAMBA organized in 2003 and became an IMBA chapter in 2013.

In the clubs short history, we have accomplished some very impressive work. We are made up entirely of volunteers who are mountain bike enthusiasts, conservationists, and advocates for our sport and the environment.

SAMBA volunteers have created a completely new, hand built shared use trail system at Swatara State Park. There are 6 loops and close to 9 miles of trails, with plans for more. Total time volunteered at Swatara is now over 5000 hours.
SAMBA has also done fantastic trail building (trail 15 yeah!) and improvements at The Park at Governor Dick in Mt. Gretna, and at the J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation near Brickerville. With over 700 hours and 870 hours volunteered respectively.

The latest SAMBA endeavor is the Parkway Trails System in Harrisburg. Using the Greenbelt as a spine / jumping off point, we have opened 9 miles of hand built singletrack with 1300+ hours logged by club volunteers.

Mostly Dry, Fallen Trees - Trail is mostly dry. Only two fallen trees. This is a GREAT AREA to mountain bike, walk, hike, or ride horses. Perfect mix of well maintained service roads which are trails, and singletrack hiking trails that are not overgrown. No need to worry about ticks on close branches or high grass.

Some Mud - almost a stretch to call this a mountain bike trail. is definitely better suited for hiking. Me and the lads took a go at it and it is by far the most techy trail we've sent. nearly impossible to gain enough momentum to hop over obstacles. would not recommend if you're looking for a brisk ride. would make a good session area for trying out rock crawling.
