“A steep hiking trail that accesses the climbing area and the east summit of Rattlesnake Ridge.”— Mitchell Allen
There is a wet weather closure plan implemented at Rattlesnake Ridge. During inclement weather, check the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail Information page for the latest conditions or closures. Group rides and volunteer events will also be posted there.
From the junction with Diamondback, continue up and right on Cliffbrake. The trail climbs for a few minutes before catching a set of stone stairs up to the climbing area. From the climbing area, follow the trail to the right along the base of the bluff until you come to a large ledge up and to the left at a break in the cliff.
Follow the trail up and over this ledge along a small goat trail through the bluff. The top of the climbing area offers views to the south, or you can continue on the trail towards the east summit of Rattlesnake Ridge.
