The Allegan County Equestrian Trail System (ETS) is a collaborative effort between Allegan County Parks, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the volunteer group Friends of the Allegan County Equestrian Trail System (FACETS).

Horseback riding in Allegan County has been a very popular recreational activity for residents and visitors for many years. Most of the equestrian activity in the County takes place in the 50,000-acre Allegan State Game Area. Up until recently this riding activity in the Game Area has been through a “dispersed” riding program, meaning there were no designated riding trails. However, in an effort to make riding in the Game Area more user-friendly and to protect sensitive ecosystems Allegan County Parks, via a 25-year renewable lease agreement with the State of Michigan, has taken over management and ownership responsibilities for a designated equestrian trail system in the Game Area.

Special Note: All Allegan County ETS trails that are part of the Game Area will be closed to riding from November 15 to November 30 each year. This coincides with the firearm deer season.
