The Friends of the Hennepin Canal will be holding their monthly Hike the Canal outing on
Sunday, June 10.

This month’s hike will be from Lock 25 to Bridge 37.  This portion of the “Hike the Hennepin” is 4.4 miles in length and it has been named the “Cardinal”. 

We will meet at Bridge 37 (Geneseo Campgrounds) at 1:30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Lock 25 to begin our hike.   The Geneseo Campgrounds are located on Route 82 north of Geneseo and on the north side of the canal.

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 in 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.
