PRESCRIBED BURN NOTICE: Burns will be done Thursday (5/19). The fenced-in impact area south of Reese Rd. will be burned first, followed by the peninsula unit. Expected time is late morning/early afternoon. They may also try to burn the Eagle Lake Peninsula unit depending on rain. This will impact the Historical Trail as Reese Road is the southern boundary of this burn unit. Wind direction and speed may blow smoke to other trails.

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!!!
