Brisk Hike: Rattlesnake Ledge

I am hiking the Rattlesnake Ledge Trail and timing myself. I am not a trail runner so I won't be going that fast. I don't plan to stop to smell the moss either. My pace will be somewhere in between that...for as long as my out-of-shape self can go anyway.

Depending on how hot it is, I may be bringing my small dog (it's ok...she's quite the hiker). If you plan to bring yours, please let me know in the comments section below.

I encourage carpooling to the trailhead. If you are interested, leave a comment below and hopefully you can match up with someone.

Trail details: No parking pass required at the trailhead. 4.0 miles rountrip to the ledge (you can continue past the ledge on your own if you want). The elevation gain is approximately 550 feet per mile. It's a steady climb and a good workout but pretty short. The last trip took about 2.5 hours, including a break at the top.

    Hi, I would like to car pool with someone. I can meet at the Eastgate park & ride. Or either south Seattle or downtown whichever is more convenient. I'm happy to chip in for gas. Thanks!

      I live in the Green Lake area too Tina. We could meet up and then swing into the Eastgate P & R to get Imani. I will have a little dog with me though so if either of you are allergic......
