Wildflower Walk: Badger Mountain

  • Badger Mountain Skyline Trail (map)

As you proceed up slope, the early risers, the white prairie stars and the wild onions start to appear.  The violet-pink milkvetch blooms with yellow desert parsley as the spring show begins.

Badger Mountain offers a unique opportunity to see the changing ecology with elevation and how the different plant communities are affected by moisture and soil types.  At the top:  the lovely rosy balsamroot. Meet: 10:00 a.m. Badger Mountain Skyline Trailhead.  Dress appropriate for the weather, bring snacks, and don’t forget your cameras.  Please contact trip leader Rik Smith at if you plan on attending.
