Trail Information


This is an awesome trail within the 5 Mile Recreation Area that takes you up to 2 incredible viewpoints overlooking just about every direction. "The Snakes" as the locals call it, consists of Rattlesnake, Constrictor, Winter Solstice Road and more recently Sidewinder and Sidewinder Exit, but rarely do people run many of the hundreds of spurs in the area. This is one of those rarely used routes. It is a fun challenge for just about any vehicle. Due to its steep ascent, just about everyone will spin a tire or two trying to reach the top of the initial climb. After the first viewpoint overlooking The Pony Express, the trail gets much easier and a bit more used, but that won't take away from the surprise at the end of this gem.

Very cool trail. Fun climb, but very narrow. Unfortunately with the snow we couldnt make it up the very last climb. A couple obstacles to keep it interesting but not too bad. Not too many people in the area with snow the Saturday before Christmas. Felt like we had the entire system to ourselves.

Fun little trail that gets you away from most of the people of the area. The views from the top are pretty awesome. I really just wish this area wasn't busy all the time.
