I&M Canal/Centennial Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route is jammed with scenic vistas and fascinating local history. While tracing the route of the Des Plaines River, the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, and the I&M Canal, you’ll pass two museums, several parks, and a couple of historic sites. Much of the northern half of the route offers a surprisingly remote feel as it cuts through many acres of wetlands and bottomland woods.

The trail is paved for the first 9.2 miles in Cook County; the trail surface is crushed gravel for the remaining 10.9 miles in Will County. The terrain is flat throughout. Things to see include: Des Plaines River, Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, bottomland woods, prairie, Isle a la Cache Museum, the I&M Canal, the I&M Canal Museum and Visitor Center, and the Joliet Ironworks"
