Very beautiful ride, through tunnels of trees and very flat. Along the way there are very small towns that you can stop off at and rest or have refreshments. We met some other bikers along the way and stopped and chatted with them for awhile. Saw them on the way back also. Just a nice get away for some peace... More

The Kal-Haven trail is an great scenic trail. We've hiked and biked this trail and both times we were impressed by the colored trees in the fall and the food at County Fare in Grand Junction in the winter. The Kal-Haven trail is an easy path along an old railroad path and the views are spectacular. This is definitely a... More

Flat, straight (used to be a railroad track), very well kept, partly under a tree canopy that was beginning to change colors. Enjoyed it.

Nice easy traveling. The trail is in great condition and it looks to be used by a lot of people. There is good info at the trailhead and a good size parking lot with restrooms (pit toilets) available. Going to come back and use it more someday.

The trail is flat, well-maintained and winds through residential areas, farms, new-growth forest, and rivers. We appreciated the occasional port-o-let, picnic table, and water pump. We rode four miles in either direction but we could have done more if we'd had more time. We visited on a weekday; I can imagine that it's a lot busier on weekends. Worth visiting.

a flat, straight trail that goes thru wooded areas, enjoyable for a casual ride but doesn't have many interesting views... at least for the first 10 miles or so.

This trail is very easy (flat and smooth gravel) to ride miles on. We rode 7 miles in and because it was flat and straight you do not need a map at all.

The Kal Haven trail provides over 33 miles of railroad bed to bike, walk and run. It's very well maintained, and has all different kinds of views. There are parking lots in South Haven and Kalamazoo, with other smaller stops in-between. It's one of South Haven's big draws and wonderful to use.

The Kal Haven Trail is well maintained, and shady in many spots. The covered bridge as you get close to South Haven is beautiful. Friendly bikers abound!

My family recently did about a 4 mile round trip walk with the two kids - 3 & 5 - in our Chariot thing-a-ma-bob stroller. It was a very nice and relaxing hour walk, with plenty of shade from some beautiful woods. Most of the trails back by us our either old canal tow-paths or rail lines in the middle... More
