Friends of the Hennepin Canal Monthly Hike on January 15, 2023


The Friends of the Canal monthly hike is on Sunday, January 15, 2023, on the feeder bridge from Bridge 52 to Bridge 56. The hike is 4.2 miles in long and is named the “Red Squirrel”. Hikers will meet at 1:30 PM at Bridge 56 on Route 92, four miles west of Route 40. Route 92 is 13 miles south of Rock Falls on Route 40 or 12 miles north of I80, Exit 45 on Route 40.

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.
