One singletrack climbing the west side of a treeless mountain overlooking the junction of the Columbia and Yakima Rivers. Look north and you can see Rattlesnake Mountain, its big brother, the tallest tressless mountain in the world.

Summary:
Badger Mountain is privately held and widely used by hikers. The controlling group (Friends of Badger Mountain) had a cow when a midnight driver in a Jeep got stuck in a gully on the side of their mountain recently. There was a lot of debate about removing it without defacing the local plantlife. Seriously, stay on the trail. No midnight dirt jump builders, please.
There are two trails on the east, off Trailhead Park. One is hiking-only. Please respect that.
On the west side is the older bikes-okay trail, off Dallas Rd. Long, relentless climb, then a flatter rolling trail with fabulous views, then the crest. The descent is great fun, but watch out for the hikers and their dogs.

Recommended Route:
Find the parking area. Go up the one trail. Come down.
West trailhead: From I-182, take Queensgate N exit outside Richland. N to Duportail. L on Duportail to Keene. R on Keene to Dallas (traffic circle). L on Dallas, under the freeway, second left. Three gravel roads diverge; take the center one. Parking lot is halfway up on the right.
