Rattlesnake Ledge Hike

Lets for for a hike up Rattlesnake Ledge. You won't find better views anywhere else this close to Seattle. Rattlesnake Ledge is a monolithic block of rock on the eastern end of Rattlesnake Ridge, towering high over the cool waters of Rattlesnake Lake and the Snoqualmie River valley.

This is considered a moderate hike with a trail length of 2 miles (4 miles roundtrip) and an elevation gain of 1,160 feet. I can usually make the hike up and back in two hours - or a little longer if the weather is nice and I hang out longer at the top.

Please be aware that you hike up to a high (but large) ledge with a straight view to the bottom. If you have vertigo or a fear of heights you may want to skip this trip or be prepared to hang out below the ledge to wait for the group. All dogs must be leashed. Please pick up after your pet.

For more trail information and trail trip reports go here http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/rattle-snake-ledge. The trip report for Feburary 06 (currently the second one on the list) was written my me.

    A little cold and snowy, but the hike and company were great!

    fun times albeit a bit wet, but who said being wet is bad? Jess, here's the link to Twin Falls: http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/twin-falls-state-park and (state park site) http://www.parks.wa.gov/parks/?selectedpark=Olallie&subject=all. We'll have to schedule that one for the future at some point! Cheers, Terris

    I don't know. I haven't been out there since the last hike. I don't think the snow level has been down that low and even if it had been, this rain would wash most of it away.

    WEATHER UPDATE

    I just thought I would give a freindly weather update so you can be sure to come prepared. If you change your mind about coming based in the weather report, please update yoru RSVP so we don't expect you.

    Saturday in the Snoqualmie Valley calls for 85% chance of rain showers, highs in the upper 40s and a wind of about 10 mph.

    In other words, expect rain, expect it to be a little windy at the top and dress in layers.
