Bike from Kalamazoo to South Haven, or I prefer the opposite direction. You can go for a stroll too. shady, mostly paved, safe, quiet, well-signed. go for 1 mile to the whole 30 mile trail.

I found the first mile, especially the covered bridge, to be very nice and scenic. However, after the first mile, one is traveling on a dirt path through the countryside. Admittedly I've only gone 5 miles so far, but look forward to trying more of the path, although I'm not sure how much the rest of the path can improve... More

This is the most boring trail I have ever been on -- it's flat and straight and flat and straight, without virtually nothing to look at on either side of you for miles and miles and miles. However, there are "farm" smells in certain places which is good because you'll need to wake up from the hypnotic state this trail... More

one of the best nature activities in South Haven to do whether by bicycle or walking. Extends south from South Haven to the state park and beach, extends North through downtown South Haven and far beyond into the wilderness surrounding the area running by and through bridges, creeks and rivers.

We only biked the western end of the trail for 3 miles out and back. First part along the Black River then onto an old rail bed. The trail bed is crushed limestone but is very hard packed and easy bike riding.

Nice trail...You can stop along the way for fresh blueberries and peaches. Not paved but hard packed. Mostly well shaded.

This trail is gorgeous! We rode the morning of a very hot day and the shade made it more than bearable. The flat ride worked well for our youngest rider. We rode on a weekday, so it wasn't too crowded.

easy access to trail from our campground. Approximately 3 miles into town winding through Forrest and along a creek. Trail takes you right into town. Have only ridden the trail once toward Kalamazoo, only road for about 15 miles through the country side. One day would like to complete it

We rented bikes on a Tuesday and rode the 10 miles to Grand Junction. There was barely anyone on the trail! It was a nice, relaxing ride with nice scenery.

This was my second time to visit Michigan and use the Kal Haven Trail. The first time we rode as a family all the way from Kalamazoo to South Haven and had a wonderful 3 generation (grandparents, parents, 3 preteen kids) experience. This most recent time was a little ride from South Haven to Van Buren State Park, a climb... More
