Wonderful bike trail through woods, along the river and the lake shore. Good for both young and old. Not technical .

These are great trails to run during the day. Not a fan of night running here. They are well maintained.

We really enjoyed our bike ride along Kal Haven Trail. What most impressed us was the cleanliness of the trail -- no garbage anywhere! Much of the trail is a covered trail of gorgeous trees. This Fall the leaves were changing and falling which made for a spectacular landscape. We biked, beginning in South Haven, approximately 7 miles in and... More

This is an easy bike ride through tree tunnels and farm land. My husband and I greatly enjoyed it. I would recommend it for any level of bike rider.

I only rode a short distance on the trail but what I saw was amazing. The scenery changes from river, to marsh, to field and woods. Then again from road side to small town. There are benches, campsites, trail markers, covered bridges and trees. The trail is well maintained and clean. A must do for any biker, runner, walker, man,... More

A beautiful autumn day combined with a 22 mile ride was just what we ordered and the Kal-Haven Trail delivered. The trail is hard pack gravel and suprisingly easy to navigate. Well marked road signage, along with rest stops at picnic tables or benches, pump up water wells, and even an occasional outhouse make for a comfortable trip. We biked... More

Well kept, wide trail. Mile markers. Stay on the path to avoid poison ivy. Perfect for a bicycle ride from South Haven to Kalamazoo for the ones that can handle that. Can stay the night at a bed and breakfast (I recommend the Kalamazoo House). There is even a bus that will take you and your bike back the next... More

Rather then repeat so many others comments...I will add that from the bike parking lot to downtown South Haven is only 1 mile and the sidewalks leading you there are well marked (not for youngsters due to ridding by traffic while downtown). From downtown you can pickup the boardwalk along the south side of the river channel and ride your... More

It is a nicely maintained trail with few camping opportunities. We hiked from Kalamazoo thru to the Goddess Campground (about 13 miles), right on the trail. Had plenty of wood for fires and a picnic table. We hiked another 6-7 miles the next day.
