Rattle Rocks is a steep Rocky downhill bike only trail that shoots off of almond butter, then connects back with it. there are many alternate lines making the trail not too hard for less experienced riders, but can still be a good challenge for more experienced riders. There has been some ruts in the trail especially near the end that really catch you, so watch out But overall is a fun trail.
