The Friends of the Hennepin Canal will be holding their monthly Hike the Canal outing on Sunday, August 19.
This portion of the “Hike the Hennepin” is 3.2 miles in length and it has been named the “Kingfisher.”
The hike will be from Lock 17 to Lock 21.
Hikers will meet at Lock 21 (Lift Bridge) at 1: 30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Lock 17 to begin our hike.
Lock 21 is located approximately 3 miles west of Wyanet on Routes 6 & 34.
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 and bring bottled water for hot weather hikes.
