Discover the Kal-Haven Trail
The thrill of the outdoors, the beauty of nature, the serenity of being unplugged…
The Kal-Haven Trail is an amazing 34 mile long linear, multi-use trail that links Kalamazoo to South Haven and is southwest Michigan’s premier tourist destination. The Trail passes through busy towns and small villages, open farmland and orchards, delicate wetlands and ends on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Kal-Haven Trail State Park ranks as the Number 1 ‘thing do to’ by TripAdvisor for our region.
