Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Pumpkin Vine Trail - wonderful

October, 2020 by karen.surdenik

Rode this from Goshen to Shipshewana and it was wonderful. Favorite part for me was between Middlebury and Goshen actually closer to Goshen probably because it was early October and the fields were beautiful and the many tunnel of trees were so colorful. Wonderful trail, very well kept, safe, almost flat and exceptional scenery. Never tired of the scenery.

Dunes Kankakee Trail

Kalamazoo River Valley Trail

Nice Ride

September, 2020 by seeyajohn

I rode the KRV from D Avenue to Galesburg and back on a recumbent bike. The most interesting parts of the trail are at the two ends. The trail undulates through wooded areas in both cases, but the D Avenue end is very hilly. The trail is asphalt throughout and mostly smooth. There are several highway crossings that require care. The part of the trail near downtown Kalamazoo has one underpass that is best traversed on foot due to sandy dirt on the trail. This section likely is unpassable after a heavy rain.

As the trail heads east there is a section that runs through a park along the river. But then the trail emerges onto a course along route 96 and heads into Comstock. The short ride through Comstock calls for care with turning traffic going into businesses. East of Comstock is a nice brief ride through a park before again returning to route 96. The final section of the trail is a very nice ride through a park into Galesburg.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

Outstanding if it were ashphalt

September, 2020 by seeyajohn

This would be a great trail if it were asphalt. As it is it is a nice ride with considerable shade. I rode the trail on my recumbent from the trailhead at Kalamazoo to the small community of Kendall. Since it is a rails-to-trails course, there are no major hills on the trail. However there is generally a slight grade favoring eastbound riders.

The crushed gravel surface is mostly smooth riding with only a couple of spots where the gravel is loose and one must be extra careful. The wooded ride was enjoyable and worth repeating. I hope to try the trail from the other end at South Haven soon.

Calumet Trail

Fun for fat tire bikes or MTB

September, 2020 by just*jim

No this trail is not paved or smooth but if you enjoy more of a path then pavement, you will enjoy this one. During periods of rain the trail does have sections with standing water ....but we wear our sandals and it's fun.

Dunes Kankakee Trail

Nickel Plate Trail

Southern section on a hot day

August, 2020 by jwschuchman

This was a great ride. I rode from Kokomo to Peru and back. There was a lot shade, very peaceful and it was not crowded at all. I look forward to riding it again.

Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail

Good ride experience

August, 2020 by nieh.jerry

The ride is very enjoyable. It is more scenery at the Nile town area along the river. There are quite a few benches along the trial just in case you want to sit down for short break.
