Construction Begins on Badger Mountain Trailhead Parking Area

Officials broke ground Monday for a new 50-space parking lot at Trailhead Park for the Badger Mountain hiking trails in Richland. More than 200,000 visits were recorded last year on the 1,600-foot mountain, making it one of the most hiked mountains in the state. Lack of parking leads many visitors to park on Queensgate Drive, causing problems for residents. Tri-City Herald article
