Its southern terminus is the end of the pavement as it enters bike the Essex Region Conservation Authority-controlled Devonwood Conservation Area, a heavily-wooded Devonwood Bike Trail animal and plant sanctuary. The path has several short branches less than 100 m long to connect it to neighbouring cul-de-sacs, and passes through a couple Bicycle rack parks.
The trail would use the Riverfront Bike Trail and Ganatchio Trail to the north, the West Windsor Recreationway to the west, Devonwood Bike Trail a new alignment following Cabana Road to the Devonwood Conservation Area. The loop has a couple crossings at E.C.
The Loop would also follow the current Devonwood Bike Trail, following along North Service Road and E.C. One main obstacle is the Devonwood Conservation Area, which has several sharp Devonwood Bike Trail curves, poor visibility at times, and is a protected nature preserve. The City of Windsor has expressed intentions on creating a bike trail, bike lane, and signed-route/Bike-Friendly Street beltway around Windsor, using pre-existing routes, lanes, and trails, and adding new ones to streets.
The city hopes to Devonwood Bike Trail finish the Loop within the next 20 years . . The trail also serves the Windsor Airport, Devonshire Mall, and the Silver City mall and theatre area via bike lanes on Calderwood Avenue and a paved trail along Walker Road. Contrary to what one may expect, the trail is Devonwood Bike Trail actually quite lightly travelled, considering the major attractions within 1 mile (1.6 km) of it. Since Trans-Canada Trail signs have been posted along the western half of the Riverfront Bike Trail (and since the Grand Marais Trail has been completed, along with bike lanes and signs along Parent Avenue being erected), Devonwood Bike Trail it is speculated that this trail may provide a connecting link between the Riverfront Trail and the Chrysler Canada Greenway, which runs from South Talbot Road to the official starting point, 1.1 km south, at Highway 3 and Oldcastle Road, in Oldcastle, and travels via Harrow and Kingsville to Ruthven and Leamington.
The path starts just south of E.C. This route has not been completed yet, but several segments are already in place.
The Devonwood Bike Trail is a fairly straight and flat bike trail in the southern end of the city of Windsor, Ontario. Row Expressway to the subdivision of Forest Glade, where it would turn north on Lauzon Road (not Lauzon Parkway), and follow the current signed route and path along Hawthorne Drive (a residential street), to the Little River Extension, before meeting back up with the Ganatchio Trail at the roundabout/traffic circle.
