Very convenient location for a vacationer in South Haven. If you're looking for a flat course to do distance, this is it. You share the path with bikes, but it wasn't too crowded. Also, the Black River running along the trail is perfect for kayaking.

Love this trail. I run and bike about 1,500 miles a year on the Kal. Lots of scenery, decent number of rest stops, never too far from a town.

Great for small sections (bike or walk), or long hikes.

Fantastic afternoon bike ride. Well maintained packed dirt trail that road bikes can easily handle.

I recommend starting in Kalamazoo as the trail will end in South Haven, just a short mile through town from the Lake Michigan beaches.

Great trail to run and bike! I trained for a marathon on this trail and look forward to another spring season on it!

Great trail. Absolutely beautiful scenery and wildlife. Have done a full moon ride on it without lights and the moon illuminated the path perfectly! Didn't ride with a road bike due to the terrain you are riding on.
