We had an excellent ride taking in the fall colors along the way. The covered bridge was a nice photo opportunity, and we stopped for lunch at a local roadside diner that served up good home cooking.

We did not ride all the way to Kalamzoo but out of South Haven for many miles and it was a well maintained crushed stone trail through woods, farming areas, and small towns. Very nice ride and plenty to see in nature.

This mostly hard-pack dirt path is a beautiful, scenic 33.5-mile trail across southwestern Michigan. It was excellent for running and for biking. It is very shaded and there are multiple places to stop and rest, either at benches or picnic tables, and even multiple restroom...More

The Kai Haven trail is a converted railroad track. The trees have grown up around it to provide a mostly shaded walk. The trail is flat after an initial stretch from the parking lot of about 1/2 mile. Nothing difficult even about that part since...More
