I love hiking up Rattlesnake during the week. Unfortunately there are way too many people on the trail during the weekend. The view from the top is worth the hike.

This trail is ridiculously crowded on weekends. View is good, but not great. Great hike if you are short on time and just want some exercise.

Short but decently steep trail that leads to a ledge with a great view. This trail gets very icy during winter if snow is present, make sure to bring traction such as Yak Tracks or Microspikes.

It's an uphill two mile walk through switchbacks. It wasn't as easy as other reviews made it sound, but you can definitely persevere. There were lots of families with children. Also, since it was winter, there was a good half mile of packed snow. We...More

Small children are brought frequently but use extreme caution at the top! Pack a lunch in and enjoy the view. Be sure to take your trash with you. Some generous individuals had left some for the chipmunks.

This hike generally starts at Rattlesnake Lake and then does a switchback climb to the ledge. Most stop here for the great overlook of the valley in North Bend. I just strongly recommend if you have the energy to continue walking along the ridge towards...More

Excellent hiking trail. Lots of steep hills to climb but the views on top were well worth it. Wear sturdy shoes and bring lots of water.

Hello Danielle -- The lake does go down a bit in summer and fall but it should be doing very nicely after recent rains. Yes, the trail can be busy of weekends, particularly if pleasant weather. We hike it year-round, often... More
