The Kalamazoo River Trail is a mixed use paved trail for walkers, joggers, and bikers. No motorized traffic is allowed. Parking is free at all 12 designated parking spots. It has moderately heavy traffic and runs a variety of programs. The trail winds through a beech maple forest, crosses through some prairie grasslands, runs in front of the Kalamazoo Nature Center (where there is free up front parking for the trail, but you cannot enter the KNC), and then back into some more woods before rejoining the river and running along the river into downtown Kalamazoo.
