    Fort Custer is by Battle Creek which is in your area. Went out there for the first time two weeks ago and it was great. You will need to buy a pass to use the recreation area. You can google it or there is a website that has trail updates and info.

    TK Lawless is relatively close to Three Rivers. Yankee Springs is decent drive from there but well worth the trip. Check the MMBA website trail guide, lots of good information there.

    Ft. Custer is in Augusta, MI (about 20 minutes East & North out of Kalamazoo). I am attaching a map for an awesome ride at this course. Ride the Red to Green loop...it is around 12 miles of very well kept up trail riding. Some climbing, some cool/ fast decents, good trail surface-very little sand if any at all.

    A day pass for Fort Custer is 6 bucks. Custer has some very good trails. As I ride there alot. You could spend a day out there. Red, to green or just ride the red then the green and then the blue. Its all good. Haven't been to yankee yet but Ive heard very fun and fast, but has some sand.. Lots of good bike shops around also. Custer Cyclery just down the road from the entrance to Fort Custer. Team Active in battle creek and Breakaway Bikes in Portage.
