Benton County to Buy Candy Mountain Land for Preserve

February 23, 2016

With generous donations from the Friends of Badger Mountain and a matching grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, Benton County will buy nearly 200 acres for the Candy Mountain Preserve this spring.

Excerpt: “Candy Mountain Preserve is the next link in Friends of Badger Mountain’s vision of a 20-mile network of ridge-top trails that starts at Amon Basin on the Kennewick-Richland border and extends to the Yakima River by way of the summits of Little Badger Mountain, Badger Mountain, Candy Mountain and Red Mountain.”
