      Members of the nonprofit volunteer organization, SAMBA, began construction on the new trail in March. Since then, 143 volunteers donated 1,600 hours of their time to creating a new outdoor venue for the community, medical center students, faculty, employees, and patients. SAMBA president and Derry Township resident, Nick Loftus commented, “Communities build trails, and trails build communities.”

      There are different sections available for beginner, advanced, and expert mountain bikers. Along with mountain bikers, hikers, runners, and dog walkers can enjoy the nature-filled single track. This unique group of trails is accessible to the public via the medical center campus and is in proximity to several other area trails like the Eshenour Trail and the Horseshoe Trail. The trails were developed in partnership with Penn State Health, and the project is consistent with the medical center’s environmental sustainability plan.

      SAMBA board member and local park liaison Glenn Rowe noted, “Hundreds of mountain bikers and hikers already have enjoyed the trails. This will clearly be a regional outdoor attraction that will provide many benefits to the users as well as local businesses.”
