We were in town for a fishing charter and I came here since I arrived early and had some time to kill. I very quickly found myself hiking along this trail finding some Geocaches. Next time I'm up for our next trip, I'll be bringing a bike so I can really experience the whole trail. Love the covered bridge and... More

Trail from South Haven to Kalamazoo for biking, walking or running. Maintained and marked. Good parking area at trail head in South Haven. Attractions along the trail such as Bumbleberry Farms (Mile #4) and Stokes Farm in Grand Junction. Will be beautiful with the Fall colors in October.

I've biked the Kal-Haven Trail a number of times over the last 12 years. It is nicely maintained and marked. I typically start in South Haven and go west. There are benches, periodic water fountains, and a few portable toilets. It's predominantly shaded making it a nice choice for hot, summer days. I've never biked it in the Fall, but... More

We walked about 3 miles of this trail and loved the surprises along the way, from the covered bridge to the duck pond. We'll be back!

We rode just over 11 miles on this trail starting in South Haven. We turned just past Grand Junction to head back to South Haven. The South Haven Trailhead is very nice and well kept. The first 2-3 miles is especially scenic running by the river, a rolling trail, over a covered bridge, and under a highway. After that, it... More

My husband and I love walking this part of the trail. The covered bridge is very romantic! We also kayaked along the river and made it to the covered bridge.

We only walked about 3 miles of this 33 mile trail, but want to go back with bikes. We saw a great variety of wildlife. The trail was in great condition and easy to walk.

We love discovering great bike trails where we can bike & explore the area. We drove three hrs to South Haven based on reviews on TA. Arrived 8/8/16, a very hot day. Parking lot had almost no shade & a pit toilet which should be maintained better. We biked 10 miles RT with these comments: Trail mostly flat with some... More

We walked this trail last October when colors were at their peak. It was a great trail to enjoy the cool air and fall colors. We talked to a biker from Kalamazoo who had stopped to take a break by the river (creek?) As another reviewer mentioned it is not a particularly challenging trail if that is what you are... More

We rode about 6-7 miles from the South Haven end of the trail and then back, on rented bikes. There's the covered bridge seen in the photos (yes, it's cute), but mostly there's nicely undisturbed farms, streams and rural vegetation. Most of the ride is shaded, which is welcome. Only downside was that the surface, while well maintained, was unpaved... More
