If you are looking for a place for trail running in Kalamazoo, it doesn't get better than Al Sabo. The preserve offers several loops of varying distance, moderate changes in elevation, and quite place for a relaxing, shaded run. Bring bug spray for the horse...More

A nice place to take a walk in the woods. Good quality and clearly marked trails. Be warned: people don't pick up after their dogs, so watch where you step.

We stopped for a few mile hike on a Friday morning. There were a few people we saw on the hike. There are a few trails through woods, grasslands, and a pond area.

Love bringing my fur babies here. Excellent walking for animals and exploring for yourself. Great area for star gazers

Whether by yourself, or taking a canine friend, the Al Sabo Preserve is worth your time. The trails are well kept with wooded spaces, open meadows and creeks. Keep your dog on a leash out of consideration for others.

Beautiful setting, but trails are very poorly marked. Very easy to get all turned around and lost. Would be ideal if the trails had clear markings the entire way.
