Trail Rattlesnake
There's a section that connects directly to the KVR from the closest point. You basically just rock down the gully next to the new neighbourhood when you're near the tail end of the trail as depicted on the trailfork map.

Trail Rattlesnake
As of July 2019 it’s easy enough to exit from, but I’ve seen it change over the years. The trail ends 50m from the cul de sac and is great if you want to finish your ride in Naramata or the bottom of the Aramata shuttle. Fun trail with some gentle smooth-ish rock and lots of grasslands.

The entrance off the KVR no longer has a swing gate. The gate has been replaced by a Texas Gate cattle guard. There is also a nice map kiosk at the entrance

Trail Sidewinder
Sidewinder was originally only from Rusty Muffler up to Cow's End. The rest of the trail is called Tripod as this was the original trail in the area and named that for 20 years. Somehow in the last couple of years the it has grown to incorporate Tripod climb up to the Tripod Junction. Too late now but this is the truth, the real truth and nothing but the truth. TOPSOG

Trail Sidewinder
It's too late now, but Sidewinder was originally just from Rusty Muffler to above the Rusty Grate to the Junction with Tripod. Tripod was the original trail up to, well, to the Tripod lookout. Everything else came after that. Somehow this was changed in the last couple of years so that Tripod only starts at the junction with Rainbow.
