The first phase of the Calhoun County Trailway was completed in November 2014 and is now ready for your enjoyment. The 5.28-mile non-motorized multi-use trail connects Battle Creek Linear Park to Historic Bridge Park, traveling through Ott Biological Preserve and Kimball Pines along the way, and intersecting with the North Country Trail.
The 10-foot-wide trail surface is finely crushed and compacted gravel with several scenic stretches of elevated boardwalks. This new recreational corridor was developed through the cooperative efforts of the Calhoun County Trailway Alliance and Calhoun County Parks and Recreation.
When completed, the 40-mile Calhoun County Trailway will continue east from Historic Bridge Park to the Falling Waters Trail in Concord - an important link in the Great Lake-to-Lake Trail that will someday provide a continuous bike trail from South Haven to Port Huron.
