Badger Mountain

Badger Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"One of the region’s newest parks and trail systems, Badger Mountain is an oasis of natural habitat in an area rapidly being paved over and converted to agricultural uses.

Take to Badger’s excellent trail network and traverse this wild?ower-carpeted prominent peak above the sprawling Tri-Cities, and marvel at horizon-spanning views, from the sun-baked Hanford Reach to snowy Cascadian volcanoes."

"There are three ways to the summit. The Canyon Trail, which starts from a Richland city park on the mountain’s northeastern slopes, is the most popular. The Skyline Trail from the east is another way up—and combined with the Sagebrush Trail makes a nice loop with the Canyon Trail. These ways are wonderful and well-hiked and are accessed right from the city of Richland. The approach described here is the preferred route for first-time Badger Mountain hikers and its access is much easier to find for outof- towners."
