after hiking gorgeous trails in southern Utah, Colorado and Arizona, I was deeply disappointed in this trail. every person who spoke to me about this trail at work, and the group formed to regularly hike it, promoted it with such enthusiasm and excitement that I was looking forward to my first hike on Badger Mountain. first of all, there was nothing of natural beauty to enjoy, only a man made park at the foot of the mountain; secondly, there where so many people hiking it, it was too crowded; plus, many had turned it into a race rather than an exploratory hike. The trail consisted of brown desert dirt, some sagebrush, the rare pretty rock or small cluster of tiny wildflowers, if you searched carefully. This trail has been excessively over-hyped and promoted by the residents of this area. It's as if people here have never hiked a real nature trail before!

Great local trail, avoid during peak hours. Create your personal difficulty by speed & stride. Great for a quick outdoor cardio burst.

It's close by making is a good hike if you can't travel but not a lot to look at and pretty crowded.
