Trail Description

The Rattlesnake Trail is one of Mt. Bachelor’s most technical mountain bike trails — and also one of the steepest — earning it a ‘black diamond’ rating. It feels much more like a ‘hand-built’ trail than the ‘flow style’ construction of Lava Flow and Cone Run.

Rattlesnake features lots of hard 90° turns, shallow berms, rocks, roots, and tight tree sections to keep you focused. Once the trail intersects Cone Run, it becomes much less technical, so novice riders should have no trouble if they join the trail at this point.
