The Langdon Trail runs along the south side of Badger Mountain above a large apple orchard. This is the least traveled trail in the system. It is popular with trail runners and mountain bike riders because of its meandering route as it goes in and out of gullies.

Humanity and Mother Nature have been wrestling over this quasi-urban landscape. This trail winds through a rustic natural river course where dramatic seasonal flooding makes for large-scale geological features. Mixed into this sagebrush steppe community are the decades-old remnants of an era when humanity dumped its refuse off the nearest hillside. It's a little cleaner now, but a reminder of how long our trash can hang around; long after we are gone.

Located just outside of the Wenatchee city limits, Jacobson Preserve is part of the just 3 percent of historic, undisturbed shrub-steppe in Washington. Here you'll find rabbitbrush, Sagebrush, Arrowhead balsamroot and antelope bitterbrush, all main sources of food for muledeer. The area is so important, in fact, that it has been established as important habitat for the deer, and there are three monitoring points in the preserve to observe the shrub steppe as it is being reclaimed to native habitat.
