Rattling Creek trail is perhaps the best piece of singletrack in the Rattling Creek system. It's the longest continuous section of trail, and it has plenty of variety.

If you're riding the trail from Dry Run, it's generally downhill. There's plenty of variety throughout as the trail changes elevation and direction enough to keep you engaged but not overwhelmed.

Rattling Creek includes a bridge crossing and the foundation from an old stone structure.

This trail should not be missed and is quintessential part of any ride in the Rattling Creek system.
