b Fort Custer Horse Friends Association - Augusta, Michigan


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. Our "Maps" section has 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! The "About Us" page shows how dedicated volunteers keep these trails some of the best in Michigan!

Here's the May-June 2018 Newsletter!

NOTICE:When parking at the trailhead, please clean up all manure around your trailer and put it in the manure pit at the edge of the parking area. Also, anyone who would like the compost is welcome to take it.

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!!!
