The steeper, looser, and faster of the Wallmans. Twisty at the top, and very fast and loose at the bottom. Makes a great finish to a spring gulch loop.

Access Info

If you climbed up to the top the easy way (Wallman West) then just continue. Or climb up for the corridor for a very, steep, tough climb.

       This is a great trail and can be done in both directions. I believe it is more fun to go up the West side trail and down East side trail. Its a real ripper. The water bars on the west side are fun and challenging to ride uphill. Everything in the Rattlesnake is fast, smooth and flowy.

       Rides more like a Black Diamond. Took my partner on it thinking it would be a good entry trail. It is very steep in sections

       One f*cking hell of a climb. Had to hike it. Best go the other way around. Trail is pretty rocky
