Hennepin Canal Bridge 24
Posted March 14, 2012, by Steve Conro (sconro [at] yahoo [dot] com)

All though listed as abandoned the road leading to and over are technically open. No signs or barricades stating other wise. Just a dead end sign. The only reason I didn't cross was the hill leading up to it was a bit muddy. I could have easily made it with 4WD but didn't want to track that much mud on the bridge.
