Trail Information


Badger Mountain Road is a short spur that is located along the La Salle Pass Trail. The spur is no more difficult than the La Salle Pass Trail, but will take you for a short drive near the ridge and offer you views of the South Park Valley that you will not see while at the top of La Salle Pass due to the thick trees. There are a few campsites along the route, and it would make a great location to drive to and watch the sun set over the South Park Valley.

We went to check on trails in the area, like many others around here the recent rains have really washed away a lot of dirt and left a lot of exposed rocks making this trail rougher. Will get a bump up to 3 to account for this.

Difficulty Accuracy: Harder

Rougher as more embedded rocks have been exposed. Airing down definitely helped keep my head from rattling. Great views of the valley and the some distant peaks on the way up to the gate.

This trail is open for the season, however, *SPECIAL NOTE*: This trail is due to be closed in accordance with the Pike/San Isabel lawsuit. When we receive official word that it's closed we will update it here.

This trail is located at a higher alitude of Colorado and at this time of year should be considered impassable for any regular off-road user. Some people may be able to manage these trails with the correct gear, emergency equipment, and rig. Travel with caution.

This was a nice little side trip after we stopped for a lunch break. The trail had a lot of embedded rock on the trail, but nothing that was difficult to get over. We got up to a turn-around point where the rest of the trail was blocked by a gate so you could not go all the way to the top.
