SCHIMBA is the Sugar Camp Hollow International Mountain Bicycle Association.

Sugar Camp Hollow is a small watershed that drains into Horse Creek in southeastern Hardin County, Tennessee. It is at the center of the Horse Creek Tract of the Ross Forests that has been owned by the Ross family since the 1880’s. We have many miles of dirt logging roads, wide trails, and hand built single track that members enjoy riding and maintaining.
