This trail offers a nice moderate hike to the top of Badger Mountain with a great view of the Columbia River Basin and Tri Cities. The switchbacks and trail are well maintained and offer some beautiful views of some vineyards and the landscape. This particular trail is the backside of Badger Mtn. Nice desert hike of Badger Mountain that offers great views of the Tri City area. Bring water as it is a desert hike with no water available. There are two trailheads to hike Badger, this particular one is on the backside and is longer than the Badger Mountain Canyon trail.

I was out in the area coming from Utah and I asked all the locals I knew what would be the best area for hiking/ trail running. This was everyones pick and I can see why. This is a very well maintained trail that is wide enough for the amount of traffic that uses it. I went to the top from one side to the other and back to the loop trail. It was a great time of the year to do it. The River and the Vineyards add to the beauty of this run. I would say this is a great place to come if you are visiting the Tri-City area.
