Hike the Canal – Press Release

Hike the Canal – Press Release

The Friends of the Canal are holding their monthly Hike the Canal outing on Sunday, November 18.

This month’s hike will be from Bridge 23 to Bridge 28. The hike is 5 miles in length and it has been named the “Muskrat”. 

Hikers will meet at 1:30 pm at Bridge 23 on Route 78 just north of Annawan, where we will be shuttled to Bridge 28 to begin our hike. Directions to Bridge 23 are to take IL Route 6 or I80 to Annawan and then go north on Route 78 to the Canal. The parking area is located on the south side of the Canal and the west side of Route 78.

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.
