Overview

Rattlesnake is a wonderful trail located in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. This and its sister trail, Little Rattlesnake, are well hidden and don't see a lot of traffic. This trail climbs up alongside "Rattlesnake Creek" sporting high volcanic bluffs towering above the river through old-growth forest, and then after beautiful views, travels down into the creek drainage, crossing several jeep bridges and puts you right alongside the creek and rushing white water. The trail wanders back and forth close to the creek, driving past several beautiful dispersed camping spots. The trail ends where the walking trail continues at a campsite sporting a large fire pit next to the river, allowing easy swimming access.
