Kal-Haven Trail is a linear State Park and goes from South Haven to
just northwest of Kalamazoo. It is built on the abandoned Kalamazoo &
South Haven Railroad. The trail is ten feet wide and has a surface of
crushed slag and limestone. It is mostly flat so people of all
capabilities can enjoy the scenery year round.
The Kal-Haven trail, the second rail trail in Michigan, runs over
34 miles through woodlands, over rivers and streams, through rolling
farm land and generally takes you through every kind of Michigan
terrain. This is a trail that is truly one for all ages. It is easy
going and you can hike, bike or ski however, there is only one small
section that is available for horse riding on the adjacent trail
between Bloomingdale and Kibbie.
