HENNEPIN CANAL TRAIL
Day 1 - 41 miles
No sooner had I left Kewanee that the hills started - 7 in all. This was a surprise since I had biked from Macomb to Kewanee a couple of times, and it was Central Illinois flat south of Kewanee.

I had no idea there was terrace farming in Illinois
The hills ended about the time it cleared up and the strong head wind began.
Aqueduct 7 over Genesseo Creek at mile 50.3
East of Genesseo. The trail surface is what I call oil & chip and some call chip & seal - the poor man's asphalt. It looked like it had been around a while; but was smoother than many streets and roads you will encounter in Illinois.
