Description

This trail starts near the ledges on West Rattlesnake and heads east to East Rattlesnake. Follow the green plastic diamonds.

This trail passes by the summit of West Rattlesnake (on the left) and descends to the Col Trail. The Col Trail enters from the right, then turns left off the Ridge Trail in a few yards. The trail passes East Rattlesnake Trail (on the right), then passes a view.

The trail turns left and ends at the Butterworth Trail. For the true summit of East Rattlesnake, continue to the small hill directly ahead of the Ridge Trail.

Connects the two rattlesnake peaks directly. Much quieter than the main route, but still features a fine view on the east peak
