Rattlesnake Mountain to just past upper ledge 11/12/2016

I didn’t bring camera or Garmin today, this was always planned to be a shortish hike on a rainy day.  We (myself, Mark, David, Mike) parked just north of the Rattlesnake Lake parking lot in a side road and crossed the street to go up the old Rattlesnake Trail.

This is the route we took a few weeks ago when we did a traverse.  This time, due to some time constraints we went up to the upper ledge, then decided to go 15 minutes more and turn around.

Not much of a view today, it was socked in.  We got wet but it was not a continual downpour.  We all had waterproof jackets and hats and rain pants anyway, so all we got was just a bit overheated.

This old trail is steep, it gets you up to the first ledge in about 1/2 the distance.  It is nice workout.

We estimate about 6 miles round trip, maybe 2K elevation gain, less than 3 hours.
