February 1, 2016 – We are pleased to announce that QCTrails.org was launched this week.  The new website is a comprehensive resource showing the trails in the Quad Cities Area, along with landmarks, points of interest, infrastructure, and other valuable resources such as parking, water, restrooms, information kiosks, parks, etc.  The staff at Bi-State Regional Commission teamed up with Quad City Health Initiative (QCHI) and other local partners to create the interactive trails map and website.  Funding for the project is from the Partnerships to Improve Community Health grant through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Visitors to the website can find trails and learn more about encouraging and improving local outdoor physical activity throughout the year.  In the “Log My Trails” area, users can create their own account, which allows them to save favorite trails, make wishlists, add photos, comments, and notes on trails.  In addition, completing trails lets user earn 16 badges to showcase their achievements.  Go to QCTrails.org and check it out today!
