The Badger House Community consists of several sites dating from about A.D. 650 to the late 1200s. There are four sites along a paved and gravel walking trail: Modified Basketmaker Pithouse, Developmental Pueblo village, Badger House, and Two Raven House.

Allow approximately 45 minutes to complete the trail. A tram stop is available at trail's end to take visitors back to the parking area. The tram will take visitors to the overlooks of Kodak House and Long House before returning to the main parking area.
