Ascent Trip ReportTo get to this hike, you take Old Corn Creek Road off US 93, just south of the upper Pahranagat Lake - note the turnoff is difficult to see from the road when heading north. Also note that the road does go further south than Medsger Pass (at least according to my GPS), but if you stay on the well-traveled road you will get there (there is only one confusing turnoff which occurs when already heading northward - when in doubt, take the left fork). The road is in remarkably good condition until the very end and so normal cars can get to around 2,000m.
The route from the road to Badger Mountain is all off-trail, and it's difficult to go wrong so long as you head in the right direction and try to avoid bad brush.
Since this is a relatively easy hike, you may want to consider bagging Tikaboo Peak as well (on the other side of the road).
