This trail makes an excellent backpack route as there are more than a dozen campsites along the trail; also you come across many different forest types. From oak thickets to sub alpine fir meadows at Badger Lake. Visitors can try to catch small, but feisty rainbow trout in Badger Creek, as it runs along the entire length of the trail. Hikers may also enjoy large natural rock formations along the lower section of this trail.
