The Kal-Haven Trail is a 33.5 mile linear multiple-use trail that links Kalamazoo to South Haven.
The Kal-Haven Trail is built on the abandoned Kalamazoo & South Haven Railroad route that existed from 1870 to 1970. The railroad bed has been converted to a trail with a limestone/slag surface and is suitable for non-motorized bicycles, hiking, and snowmobiling. Geocaching is permitted along the trail.
Snowmobilers can enjoy the Kal-Haven Trail when there is a 4-inch base of snow. There are several places to park snowmobiles along the trail, including the10th Street trailhead in Kalamazoo, as well as the following intersections along the Kal-Haven Trail: 6th Street, M-40, Downtown Bloomingdale, County Road 687 (Kibbie), and Baseline Road and 67th Street. In addition to registration of a snowmobile in Michigan (or from another state or province), a person who operates a snowmobile in Michigan must purchase a snowmobile trail permit sticker. The trail permit sticker is valid for one year, beginning October 1 and ending September 30 of the following year. Snowmobile trail permits can be purchased from the DNR E-license website or the Michigan Snowmobile Association website.
