ITC Corridor Trail (Canton) Description

Canton's ITC Corridor Trail makes use of a power-line utility corridor, converting this space that previously served as a barrier between neighborhoods into a means of connecting various parts of the community through the trail. Linking several of the city's parks and recreation sites together, the trail also connects to the Lower Rouge River Recreation Trail at its southern end, a scenic trail that follows the waterway on the outskirts of the city. The crushed stone trail is relatively flat due to the nature of the corridor, and while the adjacent power lines don't make for the most scenic trail companions, the corridor is pleasantly quiet and removed, requiring only two brief road crossings across its three miles.

Beginning in the north in Canton, the trail starts just across the road from the city's spacious Griffin Park, which hosts a variety of athletic fields and places to play. Heading east, a spur from the trail leads north into Flodin Park, a charming neighborhood recreation site with additional facilities for family fun. The main trail follows the power lines to the south, entering a wide corridor separated from the nearby residential areas by lines of trees - the trail itself gets some amount of shade, running close to the treeline, but you definitely won't be able to avoid the sun entirely. The trail comes to an end at the Lower Rouge River, where you can continue your journey on the east-west crushed stone trail along the river bank - intrepid trail users can even follow the trail network in southeast Michigan all the way to Lake Erie!

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Griffin Park and Flodin Park in Canton - Griffin Park is located off of Sheldon Road, several blocks north of Cherry Hill Road. Flodin Park is located off of Saltz Road near the intersection with Morton Taylor Road. Parking is also available near the southern end of the trail, at the Morton Taylor Trailhead for the Lower Rouge River Recreation Trail located off of Morton Taylor Road north of Michigan Avenue.

To reach Griffin Park from Interstate 275, take exit 25 and head west on Ford Road. Continue for about a mile, then turn left onto Sheldon Road, then head south for about another mile until you see the park entrance on your right.
