RATTLE SNAKE also starts from the summit junction but on opposite side of the hill to Hi Octane. It joins the Summit Loop downwards trail but then leaves it for a steep descent over logs and small drops until it meets Tank trail in the valley of Nikau palms. Surface is a challenge but fairly dry most times.
