Rattlesnake Ledge is a very popular moderate hike to a nice viewpoint. It can be very crowded but Fall weather will probably thin the crowd. From the ledge, if you continue about two more miles to East Peak; it makes it a moderately long hike. The low elevation means we have a good chance of not walking in the snow.
- Distance: 9 miles round trip
