Badger Mountain Trail is one of the final trails to be built to complete the Prescott Circle Trail. It can be accessed from either the Turley Trail from the south or Sundog Ranch Trail from the north.

From Turley, there is about a mile climb to the "P," then the trail descends to Highway 69. This trail is chock-full of speed and flow. Be careful of the other trails users as a few of the corners have limited line of sight.

The view from the top near the "P" is spectacular as you can see from Thumb Butte to the west to The Dells in the east.
