Overview: Badger Springs offers a short trail for non-motorized users within the Agua Fria National Monument. The trail leads down the Badger Springs Wash to the Agua Fria River canyon, an area rich in archaeological resources. The confluence of Badger Springs and the Agua Fria is the location of a fantastic panel of petroglyphs. At the confluence, hikers can travel either upstream or downstream to explore this high desert canyon. Most years the river flows through early summer. Mule deer, white-tail deer, javelina and coyotes roam the area.


Consider: This seems to be the only posted trail in the Agua Fria National Monument. For a much better extended option check out Agua Fria via Badger.
