The bridge to the trail is still closed Moline is taking surveys to see what they're going to do next. Hopefully they'll have the bridge finished sometime in the near future.

When the bridge was open, this was my favorite trail. Now the bridge is closed and I keep trying to find a way onto the island to do some riding. The bridge may be closed but the trails are still open, you just have to find your own way there.

31august, 2013. The bridge that connects the island is closed. Trail is CLOSED. Anyway, you can follow the trail by the entrance that takes you aside the river for a few miles.

I ride here about once a week. Flat, rocky terrain, with numerous log rides and obstacles if you are mountain biking. Many of the trail are fast and fun, but there is not a very high level of difficulty. Great history and spots to look over the river when you are resting. Overall fun spot, most trails are well managed and frequently traveled.

Great in town trail right off the Mississipi river bike trail. There is a lot of history in the location and markers to read.

My family and I like to do a detour and do some mild off road cycling when we are biking the main trail along the river.

It's also a great place to introduce trail riding to your family.
