NOTICE: As a reminder, Firearms Deer Season opens Tuesday, Nov. 15th, 2016 and runs through November 30th. Trails will be open to riding during this time. The wearing of bright colors (orange, yellow, pink, neon green or very bright blue) is strongly recommended. It would be best to wait for full light in the morning before starting and conclude any riding before dusk.

NOTICE: The gates to Parker’s Path (R3 to R4) have been closed. Both sides of the loop are quite wet and soft. It is likely that the gates will remain closed until sometime in the spring, probably mid-May, when the trail dries out again.

Fort Custer Recreation Area is located in Southwest Michigan near the small town of Augusta between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. While there are many opportunities for outdoor activities (Ft Custer Rec Area website), our group's focus is the equestrian trail system.

There are over 15 miles of wooded, marked trails for equestrian use within the park, some with water crossings. Check out the maps section for more info. A new equestrian trailhead allows easy parking, even for big rigs.

Check out the great pictures taken by Judy Johnson, one of our Board members, that show the trails, the wild flowers, and the fun that we have at the potluck rides!

Check out our new pavilion at the equestrian staging area!

You need not be member of our group to ride at the park. But we would sure love to have you join! Hope to see you on the trails!!!
