Safe, easy trail

Nice area, bring your bikes, easy ride. Suggest snacks and or lunch. Nice get away for a little exercise. Might want some bug spray this year. Lots of nature to enjoy.

Beautiful trail all the way from South Haven to KZoo to Bell's Brewery Cafe . Not much opportunity for lunch stop - suggest take out picnic at the Panera Bread in KZoo or one of the many restaurants in South Haven.

We loved it! Mostly flat; easy to ride, even with our road bikes. Especially beautiful through the woods. We entered from the South Haven side and only went about 7 miles in before we turned back.

The trail has many stops along it so that you can ride part or all of it. It feels safe and is easy to ride.

We rode about 10 miles on the path. There was a stretch of boardwalk that goes along the river and a covered bridge. Beautiful ride!

This trail is 33 miles long and links South Haven to Kalamazoo. The trailhead at South Haven is a state park and has parking. The trail is very flat and wide. We walked only to the covered bridge then returned. Would be lovely in the fall.

Riding through a covered bridge, along tree lined pathways, in a country atmosphere..all the way to Kalamazoo! Then follow it through all of downtown South Haven...in the fall this trail is particularily beautiful. A great whole family outing...

This was our first time on the trail and we were pleasantly surprised with the trail foliage and neatness of the trail. We loved the covered bridge too! Can't wait to go back in the fall.

I liked the trail . it is in good shape . No tree branches were over hanging the trail . It seemed pretty level with no holes or drop offs,

An old railroad bed turned in to a top knoch bike path . connecting Kalamazoo and South Haven the path has many interesting features including a covered bridge located just east of I196 . the route also passes through several small towns so stopping for refreshments is no problem.
