Once an abandoned and derelict railroad, now a peaceful haven for hikers, cyclists, and cross-country skiers. A slender oasis of woodlands and prairies in central Illinois, 29 miles and counting. This website is maintained by Friends of the Rock Island Trail, Inc., a non-profit community group dedicated to protecting and extending the trail.


The Friends of the Rock Trail, Inc. is a group of concerned citizens and local organizations that are aware of the social, economic, and wellness benefits that greenway corridors provide to the Central Illinois region. Our mission is to promote and support the organized development of trail systems and amenities throughout the area. This will be done by working with the various park districts and other governmental bodies involved with trail and greenway development.


We will encourage community participation by providing a central conduit for financial donations and communication by individuals as well as non-profit and corporate organizations. The organization is recognized as a 501 (c) 3 corporation by the IRS and all donations are tax deductible.
