Well maintained beautiful trail to walk, or ride a bike. We walked several miles and it was very peaceful. For sure will visit the trail again!

My boyfriend and I took a bike through the first couple of miles of the trail, and it was gorgeous with all of the leaves falling and covering the trail. It was really nice being paved. There were benches every so often and plenty of picture opportunities!

While on a fall foliage car tour we wanted to walk the Kal Haven Trail in late October. While attempting to find the trail head in South Haven construction detoured us but did not give us clear directions to the trailhead. We plugged "Kal Haven Trail" into the trusty GPS that proceeded to take us to several places to join... More

Did not get to see autumn colors in Sept or early Oct this year, but they are coming! Love these kinds of trails - level, well-groomed and maintained. Sufficient distance to make it a challenge. This trail is mostly shady in woods, which makes it sheltered if windy or rainy and cooler in hot weather. Mosquitoes not a problem if... More

We LOVE riding the Kal Haven trail from South Haven. The trail is really well taken care of and winds through forest and farm fields. It is crushed limestone which is really nice and easy to find from downtown South Haven. It's not too busy but you will see other bikers, walkers and runners. Along the trail there are a... More

We walked a couple miles of the trail out of South Haven and enjoyed the scenery and the trail was flat and easy to navigate. We liked the beautiful trees that canopied the entire trail. We did manage to get a photo of the covered bridge which was a nice sight.

We were in town for a fishing charter and I came here since I arrived early and had some time to kill. I very quickly found myself hiking along this trail finding some Geocaches. Next time I'm up for our next trip, I'll be bringing a bike so I can really experience the whole trail. Love the covered bridge and... More

Trail from South Haven to Kalamazoo for biking, walking or running. Maintained and marked. Good parking area at trail head in South Haven. Attractions along the trail such as Bumbleberry Farms (Mile #4) and Stokes Farm in Grand Junction. Will be beautiful with the Fall colors in October.

I've biked the Kal-Haven Trail a number of times over the last 12 years. It is nicely maintained and marked. I typically start in South Haven and go west. There are benches, periodic water fountains, and a few portable toilets. It's predominantly shaded making it a nice choice for hot, summer days. I've never biked it in the Fall, but... More
