Today is National Trails Day and Michigan has a lot of beauties. The Kal-Haven Trail is 34 miles of converted railroad lines meandering through the beautiful countryside from South Haven on the shores of Lake Michigan all the way to Kalamazoo. It is a bit of heaven for hikers and bikers, joggers, roller bladers and parents pushing children in strollers. It is only through the tireless and unceasing efforts of groups like Michigan Trails & Greenways Alliance that we have converted these excellent paths that traverse cities and countryside alike. Michigan is second only to Wisconsin with established rail-trails covering over 1500 miles.
