My wife and I enjoyed riding the first five miles of the Kal-Haven trail out of South Haven last weekend. Lovely canopy of trees, a covered bridge, and beautiful farmland and streams. Easy trail--generally level slope. We are no more than day-tripper bike riders, but...More

This beautiful trail runs for 40 miles between Kalamazoo and South Haven. We rented some bikes, and set out from the South Haven side of it. The trail head is right at the edge of town, and it's very family friendly: not very hard, easy...More

We rode here this past weekend, perfect for either a casual trip or an intense workout. Plenty of shade and stops along the trail.

Relaxing bike ride along a shady trail, would be especially fun to do in the autumn. Well maintained, rural environment.
