The region’s newest park opened Friday while an official ribbon cutting the Candy Mountain Preserve and Trail near West Richland.
It’s the latest addition to a series of ridge-top trails that started in 2005 when Badger Mountain Centennial Preserve first opened.
Friends of Badger Mountain and Benton County dedicated the park at the trailhead off Dallas Road near West Richland.
Benton County Parks is accepting name suggestions for the trail. Submit ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
