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.

I've been riding this trail for the last 10 years and love it! Through the woods from Kalamazoo to South Haven. Go all the way through to the beach in South Haven or into downtown Kalamzaoo and grab a beer at Bells Brewery. The trail is crushed limestone, hard pack so not ideal for real road bikes. I use a hybrid Trek with a little more purchase with the tires and it's good. Last year I ended up sitting along the trail for over an hour watching a meadow full of humming birds.
