  • This is a great easy trail to hike. It can be a bit breezy on top so bring a wind breaker.
  • I grew up in the Tri-Cities over 30 years ago and so was pleasantly surprised to see the growth, the healthy economy and the preservation of open space. Badger Mountain is maintained by the county and a couple of Non-profits. My brother and I hiked sage trail to skyline trail and then back down the canyon trail which really means we went up 1700 ft in about 2.5 miles around the east side to the top and then dropped down on the north side in a mile descent. Saw a lot of wildlife and the many flora that I remember from my youth. Mainly tumbleweed, sage, rabbit brush and cheat grass. Thank goodness no foxtail in my socks. The hike took about two hours. There are a lot of options for a short hike or longer 8 mile hikes. I understand that the county has purchased candy mountain and will continue the trail system along both hills.
  • It may take me a while before I can enjoy hiking and see the view
  • Without it the Tri cities would be lacking. I love this place and effort all the volunteers put into the trails.
  • Great hike! Awesome hike for the family.
