The Badger Mountain Centennial Preserve protects Badger Mountain, located on the edge of Richland in Washington, provides views of the Tri-Cities as well as the Columbia and Yakima rivers. Trails are open for hiking. No motorized vehicles are allowed.

A non-profit group, Friends of Badger Mountain,[1] worked to procure this shrub-steppe area that has most native vegetation intact and then built a trail to the summit. The 1.2 miles (1.9 km) trail rises 984 feet (300 m) above the trail head in Richland.


Friends of Badger Mountain is working[when?] to raise $1.5 million for a purchase of 205 acres of land around Candy Mountain to expand the preserve and create trails on that mountain.[] This is the next step[clarification needed] toward reaching their goal of creating a 20 miles (32 km) trail connecting Little Badger Mountain, Badger Mountain, Candy Mountain and Red Mountain.[2][3]
