We walked about 3 miles of this trail and loved the surprises along the way, from the covered bridge to the duck pond. We'll be back!

My husband and I love walking this part of the trail. The covered bridge is very romantic! We also kayaked along the river and made it to the covered bridge.

We only walked about 3 miles of this 33 mile trail, but want to go back with bikes. We saw a great variety of wildlife. The trail was in great condition and easy to walk.

We rode about 6-7 miles from the South Haven end of the trail and then back, on rented bikes. There's the covered bridge seen in the photos (yes, it's cute), but mostly there's nicely undisturbed farms, streams and rural vegetation. Most of the ride is...More

This trail offers a safe path for walking and bicycling. Beautiful scenery along the way. Great for getting in that morning run before shopping or visiting local eateries.
