The easiest way to climb up to all the main Rattlesnake trails. This is a mix of single and double track trail and is really a mix of blue and green terrain. 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.

      Recent rain has been beneficial to keeping the dust down and the trail tacky.
