We were a bit leery of it being "crushed stone", but it was so hard packed we had no issues at all with our road bikes. We started in South Haven and rode as far as Gobles and had no issues with the trail being too rough or rutted. We thoroughly enjoyed it and want to come back and finish the rest of the trail. Not much along the way as far as towns, etc. to grab food/drink, but we did find a bar in Gobles.

Pleasant biking trip in time spent away from the hustle bustle of everyday life on a bike in the woods on a very well maintained trail.

We stopped here to stretch our legs between Holland and return to northern Indiana. Just a few miles off the highway. Lots of shade and water along the way.

Two of us cycled 10 miles from South Haven and then turned back. What a relaxing ride. The paths are well groomed and shaded by numerous beautiful trees. We were able to ride side by side and move over when others approached.

My friends and family rode the 34 mile crushed lime stone trail from Kalamazoo to South Haven. The loss from the Zoo to the Haven is 344 feet. There are some gradual inclines and some declines with some sandy spots that could get a little dicey for road bikes. The trail is mostly tree lined so you probably wont need your sunglasses. The crushed limestone is pretty solid but noisy and takes away from listening to nature while riding. A blacktop or cement paved trail would have made it a excellent, quiet ride. The trail is well marked with 1/2 mile markers and stop signs for crossroads. Out houses , benches, picnic tables and well-water pumps are available at several spots on the trail. Some of the pumps handles had been removed from the wells so make sure you bring enough water. You and your bike are also going to get dusty so have the baby wipes ready and the Windex for the bike after. I've ridden this trail twice now and it's lost its allure. I don't think I would ride it again.
