The trail is open for foot, mountain bike, and horse traffic.

Description

The west end of the Langdon Trail is accessible by taking the Skyline Trail 1/2 mile up from the Westgate Parking lot or the east end by taking the Sagebrush Trail 0.7 miles up from Trailhead Park. Note that there are no other connections and you'll have to retrace your route or use the other trails to return to your car making the round trip distance 6 or more miles. Please do not use the orchard's road; it is private property.

The trail follows the natural contours of the Badger Mountain south slope, curving into and out of the gullies. It passes through open grass slopes and thick stands of native sagebrush while staying a few hundred feet away the orchard below. Because it is on the south slope, spring comes early with Balsam Root and other flowers scattered about. In April, the apple blossoms will be in bloom. Numerous old coyote dens can be seen, mostly around the gullies.

The trail is wide and surfaced with gravel. Please stay on the trail and do not cut the curves. The trail is popular with mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers but there is ample room to allow passing without leaving the trail. There are no services such as restrooms or water available.

Flora & Fauna

Kestrels, nightjars, magpies, maybe a chukkar or quail, horned lark. Beetles, bull snakes, ground squirrel, coyote. Piper's Daisy, Balsam Root, Giant and Purple Sage, Rabbit Brush, Yellow Bells (fritillaria), biscuitroot (lomatia), penstemon, lupine, buckwheats, phlox, winterfat and numerous others.
