Hennepin Canal State Trail is like that uncle of yours who used to work for “the man,” but quit his job, grew his hair out and became a docent at the local nature center. The entire canal is listed listed on the National Register of Historic Places for the important role it played in American commerce and industry. Nowadays you’ll find it a bit more laid back. Its 104.5 miles have been converted into a linear park, spanning five counties. Hiking, biking and horseback riding are popular pursuits along the canal. You might even stop for a picnic or to make flower crowns in a little bluestem meadow. Along the trail, you can enjoy some groovy wildlife viewing opportunities, including ducks, geese, redwinged blackbirds and muskrats.

Hennepin Canal hasn’t completely abandoned its bustling past: boating is still permitted on the canal, with unlimited horsepower allowed in certain areas! All the gates from the canal’s locks have been replaced with concrete walls, creating a series of splashing waterfalls. Funky, far out and fabulous, Hennepin Canal won’t disappoint.
