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.
