Douglas Creek Canyon–Badger Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Great views await you here, as well as a total desert experience—complete with rattlesnakes. This area seems to be a haven for the serpents, so be careful while trekking through the brushy canyons. The snakes hole up when the temperature drops, so restrict your visits to autumn through spring and you’ll have no worries about vipers. While the snakes dig in, the other animals come out in the cooler temperatures. Coyotes and jackrabbits play out their life-and-death dance here. Mule deer browse on the rich foliage. Badgers burrow in the sandy banks along the canyon walls."
--Alan L. Bauer & Dan A. Nelson, Best Desert Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
