Ready to test backpacking gear for summer? Join us on an overnight trek into Badger Creek Wilderness. We'll begin in grasslands at Ball Point trailhead (trail #468), gradually ascending to a primitive campsite.
The next day we'll return along Little Badger Creek. From here, we'll return to the trailhead overland or by shuttle. As a gradual trek with water sources, this trail is more suitable for newer backpackers while still offering a challenge.
If new to AYM trips, please review our hiking rules. For new backpackers, please consult this checklist to ensure you have adequate gear.
