The Friends of the Canal are holding their monthly Hike the Canal outing on Sunday, April 23.


This month’s hike will be from Lock 21 to Bridge 15. This portion of the hike is 5.4 miles in length and has been named the "Raccoon".


We will meet at Bridge 15 (Visitor's Center - Sheffield) at 1:30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Lock 21 to begin our hike. The Hennepin Canal Parkway Visitor Center is located just west off of Route 40, south of interstate 80 (exit 54) and north of the Routes 6/34 and Route 40 intersection.


The monthly hikes were developed by the Friends of the Hennepin Canal as an opportunity for everyone to get to know the Canal personally by hiking it from the Illinois River to the Mississippi (including the Feeder Canal) in small legs.


You need not be a member of the Friends to join us on any of the hikes.  There is no fee for the hikes. Come and join in the fun and bring a friend.  We ask that you dress weather appropriately.
