As its name implies, the Northwest Portage Bikeway traverses the northwestern neighborhoods of Portage, a city in the Kalamazoo metro area. The 3-mile paved trail begins just south of Crossroads Mall, winds around the shopping complex’s west side, and offers access to two schools and Haverhill Park. The park offers a playground and facilities for tennis, basketball, and hockey.
From its east end, you can pick up the Millennium Trail to reach historical Celery Flats and the Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail. All three trails are part of a larger 17.5-mile system of paved bikeways throughout the city.
Restrooms and trail access can be found in Haverhill Park (6799 Hampton Street).
We took the Millennium Trail west from Celery Flats on the Portage Creek Trail to the Northwest Portage trail and then took it all the way to the end. Most of the trail feels quite secluded. There are a couple mildly busy streets to cross but they are quickly forgotten. There's a full service bathroom about halfway on the trail in Haverhill Park. On our return we took the right fork just before Constitution Blvd down to Romence Rd. This section is nice. We took Romence Rd east back to the Millennium Trail. The Northwest Portage trail is paved and in good condition.
Smooth, slight Curves and perfect for all types of trail activities (stroller running too!)
Nice and well kept trail.
