Albion River Trail

Spend a pleasant afternoon riding along the upper reaches of the Kalamazoo River and through historic downtown Albion on the 1.6-mile Albion River Trail. Completed in 2007, this non-motorized paved trail connects a series of several city parks as it follows the course of the river. Home of Albion College, the city of Albion marks a confluence of river branches that form the Kalamazoo River. You can witness this convergence of waterways at Rieger Park where several small dams create a series of scenic cascades.

Marshall Riverwalk

Go for a leisurely stroll and take in picturesque views of Rice Creek and the Kalamazoo River from the paved paths, elevated boardwalks, bridges and viewing platforms on the Marshall Riverwalk. Hugging the edge of the river, over 1.6 miles of pedestrian walkways are weaved into 0.8 miles of waterfront with close-up views of two dams near Marshall Street. Walking is the best way to enjoy the Riverwalk, as bicycles are restricted on most of the elevated boardwalks. A National Historic Landmark District, spend a day in Marshall exploring its famous architecture, museums, shops and restaurants.
