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!!!
