We took the kids on a five mile run it was awesome for young bike riders. Be careful going at high traffic times. We went on a week day much less busy then a Sunday. Obviously. But good paving and fun family time

We rented bikes from Rock N Road Cycle, which I give the highest recommendation possible. It was a short, fun bike ride getting to the trail and then the trail itself was very nice. We stopped at the picnic table and refilled our water bottles at the well pump. It was 4th of July weekend, but the number of bikers... More

This is a 40 mile trail to Kalamazoo on good, flat, traffic free paths. You have to stop frequently to cross roads, so small kids need to be watched. There is a lot of tree cover to provide shade. Look out for Bumbleberry Acres about 5 miles out of South Haven, particularly if you have small kids - it's a... More

Have biked this trail many times now. Sometimes one way and also several as a full out and back. The pulverized limestone surface is fairly easy to navigate on. I noticed much less loose sand and gravel compared to years past. Most of the trail is relatively flat, although there are a few grades - particularly the last few miles... More

We walked five miles on the trail and the reviews are accurate. Well maintained straight and marked. Well shaded. Had many more bikers than walkers. Easy walk or bike.

Definitely one of the best parts of our 4 day mini vaca to South Haven! We rented bikes at Rock and Road's on Broadway. Trail entrance was about a mile from the shop (through residential areas - safe). Beautiful trail!! We will be back!

The trail is very pretty going in and out of town to both the north and the south, loaded with things to see and benches to sit on and enjoy the views. A mile or so out of town it becomes plain old trail through the farmland, but mostly shaded, and well maintained. The main value we found was the... More

This is my favorite bike trail to go on when we're in Southaven. Not only is there port a potties but there is shade and pavement and it's good for families as well as long distance rides. It's fun to look at the properties and you can ride as long or as short as you'd like. Great peacefulness while riding.... More
