Janesville officials dedicated Sheiffer Park, named after former City Manager Steve Sheiffer, in November 2019. The 87-acre park—formerly Northeast Regional Park— now has a nearly completed, paved bike trail that runs through its hilly grasslands and wooded areas, linking two neighborhoods that the park bisects. read more…

The Rock Trail Coalition has had a busy year! Here are a few of the highlights:
- We helped to get the 1760′ of gravel trail between the Peace Trail/Walters Road junction paved to meet Big Hill Park’s paved trail!
- The City of Beloit added some new bike amenities in 2019. New bike lanes (paved shoulders) were laid along Highway 51 and a sidepath along Prairie Avenue was installed. Both make for safer cycling along these busy roads in Beloit.
- Rock Trail Coalition members hosted three Trim the Trail events in 2019.
- On September 19 about 20 riders rode the first annual RTC Gravel Ride featuring the non-paved sections of the Peace Trail. The ride from Big Hill Park north included a stop for ice cream at the Bass Creek Café in Afton before heading back.
A special shout-out to the Paynters, the driving forces behind the Rock Trail Coalition. Jayne & Dean were recognized in 2017 for 25 years of service with a plaque and honorary picnic table along the Peace Trail!
