Just hiked the 14.7 mi from LaSalle to the Fox River Aqueduct in Ottawa to officially finish the entire I&M Canal Trail. Very well maintained trail. The infamous washout near Utica is no problem as there is a simple detour built around it. Not nearly the additional hike as the one in Morris. If you have time, take the side trip into Buffalo Rock State Park for some awesome bluff views of the river and some alternate trails. Also a good place to fill up the H2O supply. All 4 camp sites on the trail west of Buffalo Rock are open and maintained. No services so be prepared.
