“not many good views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

a flat, straight trail that goes thru wooded areas, enjoyable for a casual ride but doesn't have many interesting views... at least for the first 10 miles or so.

“Easy biking or walking trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This trail is very easy (flat and smooth gravel) to ride miles on. We rode 7 miles in and because it was flat and straight you do not need a map at all.

“Kal Haven Trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Kal Haven trail provides over 33 miles of railroad bed to bike, walk and run. It's very well maintained, and has all different kinds of views. There are parking lots in South Haven and Kalamazoo, with other smaller stops in-between. It's one of South Haven's big draws and wonderful to use.

“No hills bike path!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Kal Haven Trail is well maintained, and shady in many spots. The covered bridge as you get close to South Haven is beautiful. Friendly bikers abound!

“Nice trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

My family recently did about a 4 mile round trip walk with the two kids - 3 & 5 - in our Chariot thing-a-ma-bob stroller. It was a very nice and relaxing hour walk, with plenty of shade from some beautiful woods.
Most of the trails back by us our either old canal tow-paths or rail lines in the middle of corn/bean fields, so being in such beautiful surroundings - and shade - was a nice change of pace. The trail is also much more well maintained than we are used to in Illinois (imagine that).
Next time, when the kids are a little bigger, it would be great to bike and see more of the trail, or a trip to Kalamazoo if I'm solo.
