Fort Custer Hiking trails


Fort Custer Recreation area lies between Augusta, Michigan in Kalamazoo County and Fort Custer TrailsBattle Creek, in Calhoun County.  The park originally was property owned by the military and used as a training area during World War II, and later deeded over to the State of Michigan to become a park.  Today it offers a series of trails for mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding.  It has a few lakes, and a great deal of hills through wooded forests for the perfect getaway.  There is also a camping area and places for fishing and canoeing.

It is one of the places I like to go to and take photos when I can, just because it is so close by.  I prefer mostly to hike the trails, although I do sometimes take my mountain bike there for a ride.  It is a great place to experience some solitude and peaceful settings in nature.
