Trail construction complete from Mayors’ Riverfront Park to River St. in Comstock
Trail construction from Mayors’ Riverfront Park to River St. in Comstock began in early April 2012, and was completed in October. Beginning at Mayors’ Riverfront Park, a bridge was constructed over the Kalamazoo River. Following the water’s edge to King Highway, the trail crosses the road and heads east before ending at River St. in Comstock. The trail was constructed between the highway and the river, and the surface for this section is consistent with the existing 14 miles of KRV Trail – including paved asphalt and wooden boardwalks.
With this new addition, there are now 17 miles of Kalamazoo River Valley Trail open for use. Parking for this new segment is available at Mayors’ Riverfront Park in Kalamazoo, North and South Wenke Parks in Comstock, and also Merrill Park in Comstock.
