Badger Creek

Hood River, Oregon

Badger Creek Professional Review and Guide

"A two- to three-day, round-trip backpack in the Badger Creek Wilderness. This 24,000-acre preserve isn’t big as far as wilderness areas go, but it is big on variety.

Here, hikers enjoy the flora and fauna characteristic of both sides of the Cascade Mountains, although the preserve rests on the east crest. Special attractions: Solitude; an abundance of bird and animal life, including wild turkeys and 46 species of butterflies."

We started and Bonnie Crossing and went up to Badger Lake. It is a great trail! We did see a rattle snake on the tral but just waited and it went by. The wild flowers were great. It got a little muddy as you came into the lake area but it was a super trail. On the way back it seems like you will never reach the crossing but there are some great lunch sites by the creek. Our Scout troop will be doing this in June again.
