In the East Riverside area of Windsor, there is some nice running around a couple of large parks, which can be combined with paths along Riverside Dr. East. We’ve mapped a 11 km loop, but there are numerous options to vary the distance. This includes part of the 8 km Ganatchio Trail.
We start at Little River Corridor Park (also known as Riverside Kiwanis Park), a pleasant, wooded park with numerous trails. One can do a loop of 2-3 km in the park. Then, head east for 1 km along Little River Blvd. to East Riverside Park (also known as Blue Heron Park), where you can do a 2-3 km loop. Short option: retrace your steps back to Little River Corridor Park. Longer Option: head north along Cora Greenwood Dr. toward the river for 1 km, and then turn LEFT on East Riverside Dr., heading west on the Ganatchio Trail for 2 km to Sand Point Beach. There are occasional river views and some small parks. At Sand Point Beach, turn LEFT on the Ganatchio-Little River Trail Ext., heading south to Wyandotte St. and the start of the run.
