Rattler is a very short, but fun technical single black downhill trail that combines chunky rock sections in the upper part of the trail with a few switchbacks and doubles towards the middle and lower parts of the trail. If unable to navigate the more difficult features, it’s fairly easy to walk the rock sections and switchbacks, and roll through the doubles.
