Candy Mountain Interpretive Loop

Friends of Badger Mountain, in partnership with the local chapter of the Native Plant Society, Ice Age Floods Institute, and Benton County, have established an Interpretive Loop Trail in the saddle. The loop trail is 1.2 miles long (round trip) starting from the parking lot and has very little elevation gain. The trail features signage pointing out native plants. See the below page for more information.
