Badger Mtn Road is mostly uphill with a grade average of 6.90%, topping out at 12% and is considered Category two, not suitable for beginners. It is a good road and has a small shoulder but is traveled by cars, so cyclists need to be careful What you’ll see on this ride is small housing areas, rolling wheatfields, fields of wildflowers, view of the town, lake, and mountain range.
