Rattlesnake is one of the most difficult trails on the mountain. It's narrow and flowing with several sharp drops and rises as it snakes through a natural canyon. Brick and dirt berms are sharply banked and the trees are tight in a dense mountain hemlock forest.

 This is probably one of the most fun trails on Mt. Bachelor. It has reasonably steep pitches, though nothing you can't take with speed. It is more raw and natural, with fun footy-rocky sections between trees. There are a couple fun off-camber sections as well. Most corners are well supported berms, but there are a couple that are pretty tight if you are carrying speed. There are a few optional TTF's that are fun - a couple small technical drops, and small (10 foot gap) booter on the right hand side half way down. There is also a paved chute into a gully that is definitely steeper than it looks on camera. If you take it with speed you will G-out at the bottom, which is fine, but be prepared to hold your line. There's a mandatory 2 foot rock drop in the lower section - you could roll it, but why?
