Traveling between Rocker Knocker and Backwoods Road, Rattler is named after the very first obstacle encountered on the trail, a gnarly, bowled, and smoothed 8-foot limestone wall. This trail can be run in either direction, but uphill from north to south is generally preferred. The best line for conquering the waterfall depends on your vehicle's width and how far your tires stick out from your vehicle's body. Generally, keeping the passenger tire in the crack most of the way up works but can result in body damage to fenders and rock sliders. The first obstacle offers a bypass, but it is a 10-foot stair-stepping wall. After the waterfall, a steep and loose bouldery climb awaits with several more 2-foot ledges. This trail is best for highly modified vehicles with large tires, lockers, body armor, and a winch. Rollovers and body damage are highly likely.
