Update

Another fast, switchback-filled challenge that has a short climb at the end.

David Gregg

Overview

Description

Look for a trail off of Skyline Dr marked by a 90 degree turn paralleled by a chain-link fence. This is Rattlesnake, a really fun switchback-filled downhill that has an alternate, steep trail cut right through the center of the switchbacks. Look for a few trail features along the way, but don't forget to downshift at the end for the short climb up to the fire road.

When you reach the road, go right and downhill for a few hundred yards to the Freeway. Or go left up the very steep power line access road that's really no fun at all. Your choice :-)

This trail is NOT singletrack. It's clearly what's referred to as doubletrack. And please, open these profiles to editing. Otherwise there's no way to tell people how awful this trail is. It's one big rain rut. Nov 5, 2014

 
this trail has been epic and epicly bad, its not so rutted right now or at least managle and fun ^_^, but ifyou know of some other close better/funner/longer downhill runs, id be stoked to hear it Apr 12, 2015

 
Sometime last year or early this year someone put some elbow grease into cleaning the ruts on Rattlesnake up. Unfortunately the recent rains have not been nice to it. Additionally someone keeps trying to build a little jump halfway down, which I'm personally wary of because 1) it's obvious that whoever is building has no idea what they are doing, and 2) to my knowledge, building features like that is illegal in Turnbull and crap like that is a sure road to getting bikes banned there.
