If you really want to stretch your legs head over to the Kal-Haven Trail, which starts on N. Bailey Ave. on the south side of the river. The 34-mile crushed stone rail-trail runs from to Kalamazoo, MI, where the trail meets the western endpoint for the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail. You will pass blueberry farms, restored train depots and even cross a covered bridge. View the trail map at www.traillink.com.
