      The Harrisburg Trail is a "short track" open to all skill levels with short track (dirt criterion) racing in mind. The trail starts at the top of the hill to the left of the picnic shelter (standing in the parking lot, facing the shelter). You can see the trail bulletin board from the parking lot. The trail entrance is just beyond it. The trail can be divided into 4 sections (for the purpose of referring to its parts). Section one begins at the top of the hill, includes 4 berms and exits on to the park service road. From there you ride up the service road about 50+ feet to the beginning of section 2, which heads off into the woods down to the left. This is the "downhill" section, and includes 2 berms and a culvert crossing. This section exits into a small grassy field. Travel straight into the field 100-150 ft and enter section 3 into the woods to the right. This begins the second half of the trail and is uphill until you begin your next lap. Section 3 exits across the park walking trail. You travel straight ahead into section 4. Section 4 exits onto the park walking trail. Go to the right and follow the park walking trail up past the shelter. As the walking trail bears around to the left at the top of the hill you will see the trail bulletin board and the beginning of the trail.
