The Friends of the Hennepin Canal will be holding their monthly Hike the Canal outing on Sunday, August 18.
This month’s hike will be from Bridge 34 to Bridge 37. The hike is 3.5 miles in length and it has been named the “Woodcock”.
We will meet at Bridge 37 (Geneseo Campground) at 1:30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Bridge 34 to begin our hike. The Geneseo Campground is 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.
Next hike: September 15 Hike route: Bridge 50 to Bridge 52 Length: 4.1 miles Meet at: Bridge 50 (IL Rt. 172) Hike name: Cottonwood
