Rattlesnake Ledge Trailhead

The popular Rattlesnake Ledge Trail begins at Rattlesnake Lake and climbs up about two miles to a rocking outcropping with sweeping views of the upper Snoqualmie Valley and the Cascades.

Two places to begin.  One great trail.

Rattlesnake Ledge Trail begins at Rattlesnake Lake and takes hikers on a popular, four-mile round trip hike to a rocky outcropping with stunning views of the Snoqualmie Valley and the Cascades.  Halfway through the loop, a hiker can choose to head toward the Rattlesnake Mountain Trailhead along Rattlesnake Ridge.

The Story

Volunteers have donated over 20,000 hours of hard work to build a completely new trail and replace what was a very steep, eroding route to the Ledge.

The Rattlesnake Ledge Trailhead sits at the Western terminus of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, and begins a connection to the Snoqualmie Valley Trail.  Nearby, Rattlesnake Lake and the Cedar River Watershed Education Center sit at the edge of the 90,000 acre watershed that supplies Seattle's drinking water.

This trail is maintained by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
