    The Hennepin Canal Parkway offers close to 100 miles of biking, hiking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, and snowmobiling. The Canal begins at the guard lock off the Rock River in Rock Falls. It flows south 29 miles to the east/west junction. Going east, it's a 28 mile trip past the towns of Wyanet, Tiskilwa, and Bureau Junction to reach the east terminus near lock #2 and the Illinois River. From the junction to the west end at lock #29 and the Rock River it's a 33 mile trip, past Sheffield (Home of Chef Eran's ZBest Café on Main Street), Mineral, Annawan, Atkinson, and Geneseo. A locally based dedicated group of people, "Friends of the Hennepin Canal" (friends-hennepin-canal.org
) are currently working to restore the locks on west branch of the canal. When this project "Renaissance Hennepin Canal" is finished, the Hennepin will rival the other grand old canals of the world, allowing boaters to leisurely cruise 50 miles of the canal without the need to portage.
