Welcome to TrailBlazer 2018. Enjoy one of the first rides of spring on the Kal-Haven Trail. The 34-mile Trail links Kalamazoo and South Haven. Built on the abandoned Kalamazoo & South Haven Railroad, it offers a compacted limestone/slag surface. Adjoining road routes of 25, 45, 70, and 100 miles are marked for road bikes. There are five rest stops provided along the route.

Many riders like to bike the Kal-Haven one way, parking at either South Haven or Kalamazoo and taking our early morning shuttle to the opposite staging area to bike back. See details in the brochure on the right side of the page.

Be sure to join us in Bloomingdale for music and hot lunch.

This year’s TrailBlazer is being hosted by the Friends of the Kal-Haven Trail and the Friends of the Kalamazoo River Valley Trailway. The mission of these groups is to provide support for expansion and maintenance of the Trails and continued programming, thereby attracting more people to take advantage of this regional resource.

Enjoy the ride!
