This is a great trail to spend a day on walking or biking. The miles are marked with wooden poles, though sometimes you might have to really pay attention in order to not miss one. The trail is mostly shady, though there are parts that are full sun for a stretch at a time. The shade is especially perfect on... More

Great for a short walk or a long walk. By yourself with a group or family. Have a mini nature walk depending on where you start or stop. It is paved so ware good shoes if walking. Great for biking. Don't forget water. Get out there and enjoy our lovely trail

This is a good trail for bikes and for people who want to stroll... Not for hikers. My 3 teenagers and I wanted to hike, we were bored on this trail.

We biked from both ends of 33 mile trail. It is lime stone but overall my narrow tires did okay. My husband biked the whole trail. The South Haven is more crowded, but tolerable crowds. The South Haven end has the quaint covered bridge. The Kalamazoo end to start has a mile or so of wild flowers with signs describing... More

This is a beautiful, well kept trail. We only walked the first 2 miles from South Haven, so I'm not sure what the rest of the trail is like... would love to bike the whole trail sometime!

If you like to walk, jog, or bike along rivers, trees, and bridges, this is a must for you while in South Haven. Additionally, I enjoy, most of the time, looking at street art and graffiti, which you can see under the bridges.

We took the kids on a five mile run it was awesome for young bike riders. Be careful going at high traffic times. We went on a week day much less busy then a Sunday. Obviously. But good paving and fun family time

We rented bikes from Rock N Road Cycle, which I give the highest recommendation possible. It was a short, fun bike ride getting to the trail and then the trail itself was very nice. We stopped at the picnic table and refilled our water bottles at the well pump. It was 4th of July weekend, but the number of bikers... More
