  • New Trails Coming to QC

    On the table for 2016 are two exciting new developments in QC trails. FORC approached and was granted approval by the City of Geneseo to develop new trails at Geneseo Prairie Park late last year. 4 miles of trail is expected once the project is completed and work is slated to start soon. FORC is also in talks with Rock Island County Forest Preserve District to develop 3 miles of new singletrack trail at Dorrance Forest Preserve in Port Byron, IL. Dirt moving is expected to commence Spring 2016.

    Check out the info below if you want to learn more and get involved with these projects!

    The city of Moline has deemed the bridge providing access to the Sylvan Island natural area and trail network structurally unsound and unsafe for public use.
