This is a really popular hike, but what can I say? I just don't love it... Yes, it has beautiful views from various lookout points, but I just don't appreciate it as much as the other super popular hikes in the area (Little Si, for example, that has such gorgeous woods). If you're looking for something not too hard, with nice views and not far from the city, this isn't a bad choice. I do like that there's a lake at the bottom for swimming... I don't love the quantity of people, who seem to be more squished together at the viewpoints than on other trails. That said, if you continue further up, you'll have more space to yourself.★ ★ ★
Rattlesnake Ridge Thru Hike
No cell reception at rattlesnake lake. Need to hitch ride, park at both trailheads, or key swap.
