PRESCRIBED BURN NOTICE: Stewardship and Forest Resources Division are planning on burning the field around the headquarters complex on Tuesday July 12th, 2016. Crews have been told to be on site by 10:00 am. This should be a slow and smoky fire, and may impact the Antenna Loop. Hopefully the wind will keep the smoke off the park road.

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!!!
