Badger Lake Trail at Fourmile Lake

“Wow!  That’s a pretty impressive view!” my friend Connie exclaimed as we rode along the Badger Lake Trail.

The azure Fourmile Lake stretched away from us to the west, with Mt. McLoughlin rising impressively on the far shore.  “You really don’t realize how massive the mountain is until you see it from this perspective.”

The Ride

Few trails offer better views of the impressive Mt. McLoughlin than the Badger Lake Trail, a fun 9-mile ride along the eastern edge of Fourmile Lake.

You’ll start the ride at Fourmile Lake Campground, located midway between Medford and Klamath Falls on the shore of – you guessed it – Fourmile Lake.

You won’t gain much elevation on the Badger Lake Trail, and in addition to seeing great views of Fourmile Lake and Mt. McLoughlin, you’ll visit picturesque Badger, Woodpecker, and Long Lakes.
