Trail Overview

Rattlesnake is a short single track in a high desert/low alpine terrain that descends from Forest Service Road 05627 (Meadow Ridge) to the intersection with Mighty Mule. It loses 230 feet of elevation over the 0.9-mile descent. This one has fewer rock obstacles than some of the nearby trails but is still intermediate difficulty due to several tight switchbacks during its descent. Some of the switchbacks have loose rocks on the surface, but they aren't too difficult. The terrain is also a bit more wooded here, with taller pine trees and bushes on the ground. It's tight and shelfy through the pinyon pine trees, with more shade. The trail continues past the intersection with Mighty Mule to reconnect with the Meadow Ridge dirt road.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate single track with several tight switchbacks but no big rock obstacles.
