“An easy trail on the south slope of Badger Mountain going in and out of gullies for a twisty route.”— Jim Langdon
Family Friendly Easy grade, wide, lots of beetles and flowers seasonally, can't get lost.
The trail follows the natural contours of the Badger Mountain south slope, curving into and out of the gullies. It passes through open grass slopes and thick stands of native sagebrush while staying a few hundred feet away the orchard below. Because it is on the south slope, spring comes early with Balsam Root and other flowers scattered about. In April, the apple blossoms will be in bloom. Numerous old coyote dens can be seen, mostly around the gullies.
The trail is wide and surfaced with gravel. Please stay on the trail and do not cut the curves. The trail is popular with mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers but there is ample room to allow passing without leaving the trail. There are no services such as restrooms or water available.
