Trail Overview

An easy and fairly scenic Jeep trail.Badger Creek has nothing above timberline, but is a nice drive along Sand Gulch, with lots of open views along the north segment that follows the powerline. You cross under powerlines many times as the trail roughly follows them. There are a few rocks embedded in the trail in places, but nothing is large.Not a "Jeeping" trail, but an enjoyable drive as long as you know what to expect.We like to run this in conjunction with Hayden Pass

This was a nice drive with some beautiful views of the area. Seems to be mainly an access route to some of the large power line towers running through. There was typical loose rock and narrow hillside trail. A cut through is there at Sand Gulch rd(blm#), it is more rutted but a lot less rocky. That does cut through private property so stay the trail. Seems the owners have placed a lot of signs to let you know. A few good places to camp dispersed. We encountered some locals doing target practice, friendly and safe. This is easily passable by most vehicles and is a stretch to label this 3, but figured error on the side of caution.
