I & M Canal Aux Sable Access Lock #8
I&M Canal - Aux Sable, IL

The Aux Sable access contains three pieces of history right in the same area. Lock #8 of the Illinois & Michigan Canal, the locktender's house, and the rebuilt Aux Sable Creek aqueduct that was constructed to carry the canal over Aux Sable Creek. This access area provides a very historic and scenic starting point for any recreational endeavor along the Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail. A new parking area and restrooms were added recently to make it more convenient for visiting guests. A drinking fountain is also available along with park benches to allow visitors to sit and enjoy the beauty and history that surrounds them.
