Current Conditions

Conditions permitting, Hamer Bike Park and the Harvest Fields Trails are open for the season.  RIDE DIRT; NOT MUD!

However, surface conditions and weather determine the status of the park.  WE need YOU to help assess when it is suitable to ride and when needless damage will be done degrading the riding experience and closing the park for long term maintenance.  Thank you for respecting the trails for all of us!

Harvest Fields Community Trails and skills park are the Centre Regions newest and most accessible trails! Purpose built with ALL users in mind, we encourage riders of all levels to get out there and enjoy our incredible new community cycling resource open to the public !!

When you visit:

Plan ahead: These flow trails and the skills park are more sensitive to weather conditions than the regions’ legacy trails. So please check social media and this site prior to planning your day of stoke! Riding with Respect is important everywhere and HFCT is no exception.

Parking: Please park at the barn’s gravel lot, not in the paved main church parking lot. To find the parking area, follow Discovery Drive to the end, make a right, (the big White Barn indicates you have arrived) then make an immediate left into the gravel parking area. (Google Maps knows where to park, and the link above will take you there too!)

Make sure to read all of the signage! Prior to riding, know the guidance – its there for everyone’s safety and the continued access to a one of a kind resource.

Harvest Fields Mountain Bike Skills Park

In October 2022, NMBA opened the first publicly available skills park in Central PA! The skills park is designed to build competence, confidence, community, and will:

    • Provide a space for cycling instruction and education
    • Provide opportunities for progression at multiple levels
    • Serve as a gateway to more technical trail experience
    • Create an exciting community social space
    • Provide inclusive, healthy outdoor recreation experiences

Harvest Fields Community Trails

Opened in 2020, NMBA partnered with community minded citizens, businesses, and foundations to complete Phase I of the community trail system, providing a unique-to-the-region mountain biking experience. HFCT is the first complete system of “flow” trails in the Centre Region and is accessible to beginners while being fun for all riders. Harvest Fields has become a destination for families and beginners to develop mountain biking skills while providing new experiences for more experienced riders.
