Clocking in at over four and a half miles, the ITC Corridor Trail in Novi is a fantastic recreational asset for the community, providing a paved pathway that connects neighborhoods and recreation sites south of town with destinations along the main drag to the north. Finished in the fall of 2019, the trail makes use of a power-line utility corridor, converting the land from a purely functional use into one that accommodates exercise, recreation, and transportation as well.
Starting in the south, the trail begins along Eight Mile Road with a trailhead at the ITC Community Sports Park. The tree-lined corridor through the park provides a nice bit of shade along the outskirts of the sports fields and a small pond, before the trail starts heading northeast along the utility corridor. Despite the presence of the power lines, the trail still offers plenty of natural beauty, running largely interrupted by road crossings or other impediments as it makes its way up into Novi, coming to an end just south of the large hospital campus along Beck Road.
The entirety of the trail is paved with the exception of a lovely 2000-foot wooden boardwalk section. In the north, the trail provides a nice connection to a local middle school and elementary school, as well as Wildlife Woods Park - speaking of wildlife, you'll definitely want to keep your eye out for deer, foxes, and other critters that make their home in the wooded areas along the trail. A fantastic addition to this southeast Michigan community, the ITC Corridor Trail gives residents and visitors the chance to get out and explore the natural beauty of the area all year-round.
Parking for the trail is available at the trailhead in the ITC Community Sports Park, located at 51000 Eight Mile Road between Garfield Road and Napier Road. Restrooms and a bike repair station are also available seasonally at the park; consult the official trail site for more information.
