Illinois & Michigan Canal

Running the entire length of the historic Downtown is the I&M Canal.

The original towpath has been converted into a popular walking and bicycle path. Mile markers with historic information and character silhouettes line the path as it follows the canal.

The path can be picked up at Delwood park in the south of Lockport where you can follow numerous trails. Heading north will take you into the historic Downtown where the remains of Lock #1 can be seen and explored.

In the center of Downtown, the path crosses through the Lincoln Landing interactive park. Further north, the path cuts through the Star Business Park, past some of the best preserved canal walls in the I&M Canal, and on to Isle A La Cache.
