Follow the Link

What is the “Link?”

No automatic alt text available.

Have you seen the above “link” signs around Northville and in the park? Have you wondered where they lead? When the new pedestrian entrance pathway was opened from the corner of Eight Mile and Beck Road into Maybury State Park, the final piece was put in place to establish the “link” from the park to Northville and beyond. The signs start at the new regional trailhead inside Maybury, and if you follow them they will lead you out of the park, through Northville, all the way to Hines Park and from there to Dearborn!

In addition to Northville—the City of Novi, Northville Township, Northville Parks and Rec, Northville DDA, the DNR and Wayne County Parks have all been instrumental in working to establish a regional trail system in this area. The City of Novi has been busy constructing pathways from Maybury State Park to the ITC Sports Park at Eight Mile and Napier Road. And in October of 2017 the ITC Corridor Sports Trail running from Eight Mile at the southeast corner of ITC Sports Park north to the northeast corner of the ITC Corridor Sports Trail was completed.

Eventually there will be trails linking Maybury State Park to two City of Novi Parks– the Wildlife Woods Park and the Lakeshore Park on Walled Lake. And from Maybury you can take the link all the way to Hines Park, by foot or bicycle. So put on your hiking boots or grab your bike and follow the signs into Maybury!
