Benton County to buy Candy Mountain land for preserve
Hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians will soon have legal access to the summit of Candy Mountain.
Benton County will buy nearly 200 acres for the Candy Mountain Preserve this spring after the county commissioners signed off on a financial agreement Tuesday.
Candy Mountain Preserve is the next link in Friends of Badger Mountain’s vision of a 20-mile network of ridge-top trails that starts at Amon Basin on the Kennewick-Richland border and extends to the Yakima River by way of the summits of Little Badger Mountain, Badger Mountain, Candy Mountain and Red Mountain.
