This is an 1,100 foot climb from the HWY 93 trailhead. The climb is tough and steep - 15% grades near the top, but a very rewarding downhill. It is a narrow, technical, and fast downhill.
Badger trail is a favorite for locals and is often done as an out and back. At the end of Badger is Castle Rock Trail
, also part of the Cerbat Foothills Rec. Area. If you continue straight on Castle Rock it adds another .6 miles to the ride making it a nice 8 mile training route.
