Culvert under Hwy 69 connecting to the Badger Mountain Trail has water and very slippery moss. I opted to not go thru as I didn't want to slip and fall on the hard concrete.

Damp & wet in some spots due to the Monsoon rains. Culvert under Hwy 69 very slippery with moss & algae. I turned back as I didn't want slip and fall on the concrete. Otherwise a wonderful trail!
