“Beautiful ride to Kalamazoo”

We really enjoyed the trip from South Haven to Kalamazoo! Beautiful tree lined path, canopied us the majority of the way. A few open areas with scenic berry farms and rural landscapes. We had a run in with a few swarms of deer flies; wear/bring your bug spray! We stopped in a small town about halfway to pick some up and it did the trick. Stopped at a few restrooms and all but the first were not bad (no tp in the first). A few water pumps along the way provided much needed cold water. Mostly flat but overall felt like the way to Kalamazoo may have been a very low grade incline. Will be back!

Great trail for biking and walking. Most of trail is shaded and cool for exercising. Just prior to the 3 miles mark, there is a blueberrie farm (Stephenson's Farms). We hopped off the trail and stopped in to buy some berries and they even have water/refreshments and a place to sit down and rest.

Fairly flat and easy trail that goes 35 miles to Kalamazoo.

Nice trail, easy to ride bikes. Not too crowded when we went and we enjoyed the ride.

We made the mistake of doing this in the peak of the heat. This year, we'll bring bug spray, sunscreen and wait until evening to ride. They've done a lot with the trail, it's so peaceful out there. I would have appreciated knowing if and when a water fountain might be available. (Maybe a map indication at the trail head?) But if you come prepared, it's exceptionally pretty.
