I&M Canal Tow Path

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail, a 61.5 mile trail, runs right through the City of Marseilles and has one of the very few remaining swing bridges. With easy access for many Marseilles residents and visitors, the Illinois & Michigan Canal provides great adventure for biking, hiking, jogging or just a leisurely stroll to take in the wonders that nature brings to this trail. In the winter, after a minimum of 4 inches of snowfall, snowmobilers may travel the marked trail along the canal.
