    Installing new semi-permanent signage at Westbrook Park.

    New semi-permanent signage being installed at WBP.

    UPDATE (10/17/14): The 201 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 2.8 miles. We are working on flagging out the next loop which when completed should add another 3/4 mile.


    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.

    Four loops (101, 102, 201, & 205) are now signed and open for riding which brings the total amount of new trail to 2.8 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!

    UPDATE: A few articles with details about yesterdays Park Board Meeting concerning the Sylvan Island bridge.

     

    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. Gates have been erected blocking access to the island via the bridge. The trails on the island and the island itself will remain open to the public but will only be accessible by boat.
