We would like to give a very big thank you to the city of Richland for the awesome parking lot that was recently built at Badger Mountain Trailhead Park.
The lot is very well-designed and beautifully paved, with a classy brick retaining wall along the new entrance. The striped parking stalls are very wide, easily accessible, and all have striped wheel stops. What a great job! We salute all the dedicated city workers who went way beyond the call of duty to build such a great facility!
Now if only Benton County would step up to the plate and build a similar facility (with modern restrooms) at the Dallas Road Trailhead. It is sorely needed! The thousands of local hikers who use the Dallas Road Trailhead every week would really appreciate it.
Roger and Claudette Stephens, Richland
