Skunk and Badger Trail

Technical Difficulty: Intermediate
Length: 18 mile loop
Elevation: 1,400
Time to Allow: 3 hours

Skunk and Badger Trail begins in a valley along Tropic Reservoir and climbs gradually along Badger Creek to the colorful Sunset Cliffs and their multi-colored rock. At the summit close to the cliff's edge (about Mile 9), you'll want to walk a bit to take in the great views. The return is a nice gradual descent through aspen and pine along Skunk Creek. The entire route is along dirt forest service roads. Springdale Cycles offers a Mountain Bike Tour and a Road Bike Tour in this area.
