Hero: Rattlesnake Butte
small-sr Icon

With a butte that looks like a striking rattlesnake and a few mild 4x4 challenges, Rattlesnake Butte is a fun alternative to the area's gravel roads. The trail is a lightly used two-track crossing over the barren San Rafael Desert of central Utah. The trail is a mix of soft sand and sharp rocky climbs that all stock, high clearance 4x4s can easily conquer. The section around Rattlesnake Butte has small rocky ledges on a mild hill. There was no camping found along the route. The trail is an excellent way to connect Saucer Basin to the Goblin Valley area.
