    Trail #458 from Gumjuwac Saddle to Badger Lake is an obstacle course. The winter storm left numerous trees across the trails.
    Trail #478 Badger Creek Trail looks like a war zone. Only people with great stamina should attempt this trail. It will take an Army to work on clearing the area from Badger Lake to trail #480. Don't know the condition after we took #480, which is also devestated.

    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.
