The easiest way to climb up to all the main Rattlesnake trails. Not really recommended for descending as there is a lot up uphill traffic. Only steep at the end. Smooth the entire way.

Access Info

From the main Rattlesnake trail-head ride up Sawmill Gulch Road and just keep going up until you reach the overlook, or any other trail you want to ride.
