kal-haven trail


wooded michigan trailThe 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.
