A New Season at Badger Flats

By Morgan Anderson, CMC Stewardship Team

Badger Flats — an area just outside of Lake George, Colorado —  sees a lot of ATV, side-by-side, and dirt bike use. It’s also a popular place for camping and hiking. In the last couple years, this area has grown in popularity because of surrounding wildfires, like Hayman and Waldo, pushing weekenders into this region. As a result, the terrain has seen the development of more than 200 miles of user-created and illegal routes.
