Did the 30 miles from Channahon to Ottawa. It was a good, well maintained trail. Lots of spring flowers, birds and camping spots from Channahon to Seneca. Be aware of the detour in Morris! From Seneca to Ottawa however the canal is dried up, the scenery doesn't really change and it is hard to find a spot for your tent at night. Luckily the trail goes next to a Caseys in Seneca because there is no water location from Morris until Ottawa. The trail from Seneca to Ottawa would be much better for biking. Overall is was what we expected and gave a good experience for our first overnight hike.
