Safe and clean trail

Very pretty and open clean trail. I rode this last summer in August, not too crowded. Scenery was very pretty and I felt safe riding alone.

We road the trail from Kalamazoo trail head into South Haven. It was a beautiful ride. There are a few places to stop to grab beverages or snacks along the way (Kendall, Gobels, Bloomingdale). It is relatively flat, nicely graded. We rode through the rain but because of the tree canopy we had a nice ride. We talked to others... More

We took a hike and everyone suggested we do this one as it is as short or as long as you want it to be. I think the metro parks in summit and Cuyahoga county in Ohio are just as good. It was a nic walk and we got some pictures at the covered bridge. One highlight was to watch... More

A great trail to enjoy nature and scenery. We did not ride the entire trail to Kalamazoo since it was pretty hot out, but we did ride several miles and enjoyed every bit of it.

Even though it was 90 degrees and humid the quick 20 miler we did was fine because the majority of the way was under the tree canopy. Still hot but beautiful

The reason I say "easy enough" biking is because we rented bikes and rode about 10 miles when I was 6 months pregnant, so it was a little more challenging for me! :) Regardless, the trail is beautiful, and is pretty flat for the most part. I would highly recommend bringing your own bike and biking it or renting one... More

We rode the majority of this 32 mile trail and found it to be a good ride but clearly some sections are in need of some attention--I would guess that after being constructed the funding for upkeep is limited--it is generally a wide trail and depending on location it consists of slag or a packed dirt/clay. There are not many... More

Great, well-maintained trail. We took it from our campground into downtown South Haven...7+ miles, and it was pretty enjoyable.

We stayed at the Jellystone Camp Resort. We biked about 1/2 mile down the road before getting on this trail. I was surprised at how smooth it was. It was shady and had some nice scenery along the way. We ended up in the Kal-Haven State Park, and then went into downtown South Haven. That trip was over 7 miles... More

I wish we had our bikes with us! We hiked about a mile of the trail and loved it. It was beautiful and well maintained! I definitely want to come back and ride it.
