Description

The Badger Flats Trail was built as 4 Eagle Scout projects and was graveled in a few hours by a combination of all the local Rotary Clubs. It was designed for those that wanted to get outdoors and run near Badger Mountain but were not looking for the elevation gain. It is a wide and gentle path that is surfaced with crushed rock.

The trail is built from three parts. The first was the existing trail from the parking lot to the kiosk that is used by the runners going up Badger Mountain. It then heads out into the open terrain of Trailhead Park across dry land native grasses following an old two track road. it then returns to the parking lot via an all new twisty path. The trail can be combined with the Canyon Trail and Sagebrush Trail for a little variety and added distance.

The trail is wide enough to allow passing while everyone stays on the trail so please stay on the trail. The desert vegetation is easily damaged and very slow to recover. Trailhead Park has restrooms, water and a play area. The route passes a kiosk with displays on the Ice Age Floods and local plants and animals, and next to the kiosk is a native plants garden.

Flora & Fauna

The trail passes through native dryland grasses and sagebrush.
