You Can’t Hike Badger Mountain This Weekend the Usual Way
We all love Badger Mountain. Memorial Day Weekend is an excellent time to take the family for a hike. But you can't do it the normal way yet. The Canyon Trailhead is closed.
The Sagebrush Trailhead near Dallas Road is still open. In fact, a wildflower hike is going up Saturday 10am.
But the Canyon Trailhead is having its basalt steps replaced and the project has been delayed. It was supposed to be ready for this weekend, but it's not.
There are a lot of perks to the Sagebrush Trail. It's friendly to mountain bikes. You can enjoy different views. It still leads to the top if you were hoping for that family selfie with a view.
But DO watch out for rattlesnakes. Just this week hikers were continuing to post pics of rattlers warming themselves on the trail.
