Rode bikes from north side of Kzoo to D ave. Great variety of hills, flats, forests and open fields. Path is wide and paved all the way.

We've biked it from down town; and from across the street from La-Haven Trail. Let weekend we walked it from the north end about 5 miles. Forest, grasslands from that end. More urban from the other. Preferred the northern end. Paved and well maintained.

A great place for a fast-paced walk or a leisurely stroll. Or a bike ride. Take time to enjoy the wildlife!

This trail is a great place to ride or walk anytime. It is well maintained and trails are marked really well. I'm surprised there aren't more people who take advantage of this trail but those that do enjoy it.

Head over and park off North Westnedge at Kalamazoo Nature Center lot. You then can hike north or south for beautiful one hour hikes on asphalt.
