Kalamazoo River Valley Trail

Kalamazoo River Valley Trail

The Kalamazoo River Valley Trail is free to use and has a paved-asphalt surface that is 12-feet wide. It's a multi-purpose trail for non-motorized transportation and recreation. Once complete, the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail will encompass 35 miles of trail throughout Kalamazoo County. Kalamazoo will be a regional hub connecting Battle Creek to Lake Michigan, and D Ave. to Portage. This existing trail and planned trails in other counties will link more than 140 miles of trail connecting the Battle Creek Linear Park, Kal-Haven State Park Trail, and Portage Bicentennial Park Trail.

Currently, there are 17 miles complete of this non-motorized, paved-asphalt trail. One stretch begins at 10th Street, heading east from the Kal-Haven Caboose and stretching 4.8 miles to Westnedge Ave. You can also enjoy a section that connects River Street in Comstock to D Avenue, traveling through Mayors’ Riverfront Park, Verburg Park, along Riverview Dr., and heading north along Markin Glen County Park and the Kalamazoo Nature Center. These two segments are connected by a signed-route throughout downtown Kalamazoo, featuring the Arcadia Creek Festival Place as well as many places to eat and shop. As funds and property become available the trail will continue to grow, realizing a vision that has been in the works since 1991.
