Hike the Canal
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 Lock 22 on the canal. We will meet at Lock 22 at 1 :30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Bridge 23 to begin our hike. Directions to Lock 22 are to take Route 6 west of Sheffield approximately 3 1/2 miles or Route 6 east of Mineral approximately 1 1/2 miles, then turn north (watch for the Lock 22 signs on route 6) on county highway 300E.
This portion of the "Hike .the Hennepin" is 5.7 miles in length and It has been named the "Mink". The "Hike the Hennepin Challenge" has been 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. We ask that you dress weather appropriately.
