RICHLAND, Wash. -- A new hiking trail on Badger Mountain was supposed to be ready by the end of this month, but now KEPR has learned the trail won't be ready until November.

The nonprofit group "Friends of Badger Mountain" is in charge of the project. They say the soil has become too dry. Construction will come to a halt next week and can't be picked back up until the fall.

The charity is disappointed the trail won't be ready for hikers this summer.
