We will meet a Lock 3 at 1:30 pm, where we will be shuttled to Lock 6 to begin our hike. Lock 3 is located on the northwest side of Routes 26 & 29 in Bureau. To get to Bureau take Route 26 south out of Princeton or take I-80 to I-180, then get off on Route 26 & go east into Bureau.
The hike is 4.5 miles in length and it has been named the “Great Blue Heron”.
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. Dress weather appropriately and bring bottled water for hot weather hikes.
