KLAMATH FALLS -- Badger Lake Trail is a 5.5-mile out-and-back trail near Klamath Falls, which starts near the Fourmile Lake campground. You'll see several lakes and a few ponds along the way. Watch the video above to get the full experience.
WARNING: The mosquitoes on this trail are really bad throughout. Unless you have lots of bug spray, you don't stand a chance. Make sure you bring some along if you want to enjoy this hike.
The first thing you'll see is Fourmile Lake as you pass by it. You can walk out onto several logs along the lakefront and get a great view of both the lake and Mount McLoughlin in the distance.
After this, once you keep hiking a little while longer down the trail, you will come across Lily Pond, where you can spot all sorts of birds, as well as frogs and lizards.
Long Lake is the last lake you will pass fully on your way to the end of the trail. The way you know you've reached the outer limits of the trail is that you will run into an opening to the Pacific Crest Trail. You can either continue on or turn back at that point.
