Harrisburg has paved bike paths plus a pederstrain bridge to get to city island.There are 6.5 miles of paved bike path plus city island.Going north after the bike path you can follow the green belt signs about 2 miles to wildwood park which is part of the green belt, and very scenic, all except the back side of wildwood is flat.

Summary:
Calling all Harrisburg riders. There has been a ton of work done on the singletracks surrounding the greenbelt. Specifically check out the area between market and derry streets. Both sides have singletrack throughout the woods. Around the powerline and cemetary there are multiple loops cut into the woods. Further down are some drops, tech sections, even a teeter totter. Multiple tech corners, logs, bridges and high speed sections. There is also a nice section off of Paxton st. Just explore and if it looks like a trail then take it. A slice of mtb heaven for the Harrisburg area.

Recommended Route:
Section between derry st and market st. Behind kline village area. Look especially around the powerline for the singletrack trail heads. Can make an entire afternoon of riding all of the trails and loops.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Check out the woods at the back of the camp hill pool park. Good for an after work ride. Lots of small off shoots. Some tech sections and a few nice downhill sections.

Summary:
Greenbelt is a nice mellow ride. There are a few offshoots that you can go play on some dirt but for the most part is a paved, gravel or tanbark path. It's a good beginners ride. There are several parking places along so if you are driving to it, you can eaisly pick your starting point. Just don't expect any serious mountain biking. It can be ridden fine with a road bike. Most of it is along no-cars paths but there are a few places you must cross major roads.
