FORC volunteers building trail at Westbrook Park.
Good things are happening at Westbrook Park in Dewitt, IA! FORC is partnering with the City of Dewitt to design, build, and maintain a system of singletrack trail at the park for use by mountain bikes as well as hikers and other foot traffic.
The first 1.3 mile loop is now complete but we still need your help! Keep an eye on the Westbrook Park sub forum and the FORC Facebook page for announcements of upcoming trail work days.
