Public welcome on Hennepin Canal hikes
NT Staff

SHEFFIELD — Friends of the Canal’s monthly Hike the Canal outing will be Sunday, May 19 from Bridge 62 to Lock 22 on the canal.

The group will meet at Lock 22 at 1:30 p.m., where they will be shuttled to Bridge 62 to begin their 4.9-mile hike. To get to Lock 22, take U.S. 6 west of Sheffield approximately 3½ miles, then turn north (watch for the Lock 22 signs on U.S. 6) on county highway 300E.
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 eventually hiking it from the Illinois River to the Mississippi (including the Feeder Canal).

One need not be a member of the Friends to join in any of the hikes.
There is no fee for the hikes.

For more information, contact Ed Herrmann at or (815) 664-2403 or visit .
