Description

The Badger Lake Trail (formerly the Long Lake Trail #3758) provides access to Pacific Crest Trail (USFS #2000) and Sky Lakes Wilderness from a trailhead at Fourmile Lake. This trail passes the east side of Fourmile Lake—with magnificent views of Mount McLoughlin across the water—then climbs to pass Woodpecker and Badger Lakes and the Lily Pond. Beyond the pond, the trail passes Long Lake before ending at the Pacific Crest Trail near Island Lake. The Pacific Crest Trail offers opportunities for loop options with trails in the area. This areas suffers badly from mosquitos from mid-June through early September.
