The July ‘Friends of the Canal’ hike is on July 16, 2023, from Bridge 34 to Bridge 37, and is 3.5 miles and named “Woodcock”.  The July hike will meet at Bridge 37 (Geneseo Campground) at 1:30 PM and will be shuttled to Bridge 34 to begin the 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 any of the hikes. There is no fee for the hikes and they ask that you dress weather appropriately.
