Moscow Area Mountain Bike Association (MAMBA) is a volunteer group working to build and maintain sustainable trails for ALL non-motorized recreation (bikers, hikers, runners, and horse traffic) near the university cities of Moscow, Idaho and Pullman, Washington. Located in north Idaho's panhandle, our region is blessed with incredible recreation opportunities. We invite you to join the adventure.

MAMBA Trail BuilderMoscow Mtn is all privately owned. The Palouse is special and it is simply amazing that we have access to a large amount of private land in which to ride and hike. We all owe a lot of gratitude toward the landowners who have given us permission to enjoy the beautiful places on the mountain.

MAMBA is a charitable organization which is exempt from taxation under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (tax id 20-1923293). Contributions to MAMBA are tax deductible to the full extent of the law, minus $20.00 for the annual subscription for the MAMBA trail map.

The IRS requires that a tax-exempt organization send a formal acknowledgment letter for any donation that is more than $250. The donor will use this letter as proof of his or her donation to claim a tax deduction. The IRS sets out that acknowledgments must be provided “in writing, at the time of solicitation or when the payment is received, and in a way that will come to the attention of the donor.” We will send such a letter when appropriate.

MAMBA Trails. MAMBA's basic arrangement with Moscow Mountain landowners is that we maintain/improve the established trails with a focus on safety and erosion control. We also build new trails as opportunities present themselves. We base new trail building on IMBA guidelines and work to ensure that horses, walkers, and bikes can enjoy them. Technical, downhill trails do not meet MAMBA's primary purpose and are not in line with the wishes of the landowners. However, we always try to incorporate as much fun into our trails as possible.
