    Camp Mack access in 06'?

    I wanted to avoid hijacking another thread about this, so here is the place to talk about it.

    I know that this year you had to buy a permit for $50 to ride the property. I understand that that B.S.A. has had financial trouble, and all that land is very valuable. Thus, all the logging out there, access fee's for mtb riders, etc.

    My questions are about where things are headed. Is the access fee going to continue? I can't see paying out another $50 for the 2 times a year I ride there. However, if paying that fee would allow some new trails to be constructed, say by SAMBA or/with the scouts, I would pay it,and/or volunteer my time to trailbuild. Especially in the areas now cleared by logging, there is potential for some great new singletrack.

    Anyone out here know the scoop??


    btw, the horseshoe on the other side of 322 was incredible yesterday! 16" wide packed snow singletrack across the ridge, then a DH was sooooooo fun. Thank you hunters for packing that trail down for me. one of the best rides this year.

    I have been working this for almost a year, and Scouts are eager to work with us.

    Yes, SAMBA has adopted Camp Mack-
    Yes, a revised permit system will continue at a lower cost with guests allowed.
    Yes, we will be able to re-route / create new trails/ Elminiate bad ones
    The permit system will be admin'd by us through a local bike shop.

    If you bought a pass last year, you will be getting a call by me in the next week or so when the new permits are available to explain what is going on. As this is being adopted by SAMBA as a group, we will be pushing to get a mebership drive to join SAMBA also. This is a real stretch, on SAMBA. SAMBA now has Swatara, Gretna and now Mack.
    If you did not purchase a pass last year and want to know what is going on, call me.

    Thank you for the update. I didn't buy a pass last year, but I would like to get one for 2006. I would like to help spread the word about access regs' and help out with trailwork whenever that happens. Please keep us all updated here on any issues or progress being made.
