Agua Fria National Monument
Badger Springs Trail
This is a popular hiking and equestrian trail for visitors seeking a cool spot, where your feet may actually get wet. That?s because the trail follows an informal path, the Badger Springs Wash, down to the Agua Fria River. The river flows through early spring and it is possible to wade in the larger pools of water. Hikers looking for a challenge can use the river?s edge as a guide, viewing cultural sites and wildlife.
