The City was awarded a Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant for construction of a 10-foot asphalt pathway connecting Wildlife Woods Park to the ITC Trail. The connection will provide a safe route for pedestrians and bicyclists to access the ITC Trail from Wildlife Woods Park, Deerfield Elementary School and Novi Middle School. At the request of Ascension Providence, City staff is considering an extension of the Wildlife Woods connection to Ascension Providence’s adjacent property as part of their planned trail network expansion, providing additional public routes for pedestrians and bicyclists. Comments on this project may be submitted via email.

Welcome to the ITC Corridor Trail. The 4.66 mile trail is a collaboration between the City of Novi and ITC Holdings Corp and traverses the entire city from north to south connecting the Ascension Providence Hospital campus to ITC Community Sports Park. Ultimately, this trail will link regional facilities – such as Maybury Park, the I-275 Corridor and Hines Park- in the neighboring communities of Northville, Livonia and Westland with parks in Novi. Park enthusiasts will be able to hike and bicycle between different parks and communities instead of risking sharing traffic lanes with larger motor vehicles or packing their equipment into their own motorized vehicle. The trail allows people to get between parks and to our local communities safely while improving their personal health and cutting back on motorized vehicle emissions. This corridor strengthens the local economy, helps to build sustainable communities and improves the quality of life by creating new recreational opportunities. The trail is an important link in the overall plan for linking recreation throughout the state.
Trail Hours: Dawn to Dusk
No motorized vehicles permitted with the exception of power driven mobility devices related to disabilities.
