    UPDATE (8/22/15): We had a great turnout and got an awesome start on the 206 loop. We guesstimate we finished around 1/4 of the trail but there is still a lot of work to go until it's rideable. Stay tuned for the next trail day announcement and pledge to lend a hand if you enjoy these trails!

    UPDATE (6/19/15): The 202 loop is now fully connected to the 101 loop and ready for tires! This brings the total amount of singletrack at the park up to 3.7 miles. If you are in the neighborhood stop by and check it out.

    Trail is still being constructed at Westbrook Park. FORC has partnered 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.

    Five loops (101, 102, 201, 202, & 205) are now signed and open for riding which brings the total amount of new trail to 3.7 miles. However, 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. Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who have already put their sweat into the trail system!
