Mountain Biking Badger Mountain

***   Add a review
#101 of 1,208 mountain bike trails in Washington
#5,399 in the world

The singletrack climbs Badger Mountain, approximately 800 ft gain in about 1-1/2 miles. The trail continues down the back side to Dallas Road (the other trailhead). The trail is intersected by access roads (there are cell towers at the top of the mountain) and the roads are a nice change of pace and steeper than the trails. MTBs must share the trail with hikers, though there is a hiker-only trail on the north face.

    A fun ride if you can get there when your not dodging a crap load of old lady hikers and dog walkers. I recommend going early morning.

    If you're a beginner, and/or looking for a good workout, Badger is a great place to start. I recommend climbing up the East side, which starts near the park, but is a little farther up, and by the 2 small water towers.

    The trail is actually quite boring, in that it is meticulously groomed (I've seen paved roads that were less smooth), wide, and also not much to look at. There are a few switchbacks on this section, and I maintain a good 6-7mph pace at low-mid gearing.

    At the top there are communications towers, and you can either turn around and return the way you came, or continue West along the gravel access road. This road is quite rocky, and I would advise against it if you don't have a full suspension bike. It's also a bit boring as well, since it's just straight and rocky. It finally meets up with the rest of the shared hiking portion of the trail, which is also smooth and switchback'ed, but fun to ride downhill, if no foot traffic is present, to end up at the trailhead on Dallas Road.

    I live in the Apartments on Dallas Road, and it takes me about 1 hour to complete a lap from home and back.

    Buttery smooth ribbon of trail—nicest I've ridden in that area so far. If anything, it was too perfect. There are no roots or logs (or trees), and the only rocks are at the summit of the trail. It was hot, dusty and desert-like, but not loose. The switchbacks are all rideable, and the rolling quality makes this a fast, fun ride. The trail overlooks an orchard as it snakes along the side of the mountain.
