CAPITAL AREA GREENBELT ASSOCIATION

The Greenbelt is a 20 mile loop trail through and around Harrisburg.  The trail includes on-road sections as well as dedicated paved and gravel paths for bikers, walkers, and any non-motorized activities.  The Capital Area Greenbelt Association is a non-profit association of volunteers that work with the host municipalities to preserve and promote this recreational resource.
