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.

Definitely high use. I was surprised how late people were still out on the trail. Also at dusk the night riding MTBs came out. Excellent views of the region.

Good trail where a lot of the community go. As you get higher you get views of richland. Lots of options and trail branches off a lot so be sure you know where your'e going.

It's a weekly hike for me and many others in that area. You have to watch for snakes (it is a dry mountain, has to be hundred of snakes up there). Although I've only ran into 1 the last 3 months. If you go around 5 or 6 at night you can catch a BEAUTIFUL sunset. Quite populated, steep at parts, dog friendly. It should be on your to-do list. Go for it! Opt outside, always. (: Happy hiking.
