The east rattle snake trail is a little more wooded and thus more buggy than the west rattle snake mountain side. The view is good but definitely can not compare to the west rattle snake side. But it's a short hike for a relatively good reward.

Fantastic view for such a quick hike! Some parts are quite steep, but the view is worth it. If you're parking at the trailhead, make sure you get there early. There's only room for 4 or 5 cars

Same view as the West Rattlesnake Mountain hike, with less people. The trail is well cut with some parts of steep climbing, and the view is incredible. At only a little longer than a mile, it’s pretty much the ideal quick hike.

Very easy hike and you get an AMAZING view of Squam Lake! The kids loved it. We went on Black Friday choosing to #optoutside

Great short hike with awesome views of Squam and Winnipesaukee. Pretty short but the inclined on the way up still gets you a good workout!

Great little hike with view of squam lake. We missed trail fork and ended up way off so bushwhacked straight up using this apps map as guide. Luckily mountain is a small one!

Great family hike, well groomed trail. Kids had no problem. Amazing views of the lake from the lookout at the top.

Looking for West Rattlesnake Mountain, we actually hiked East Rattlesnake. With two adventurous youngsters and three willing adults, we summited to a gorgeous view of Big Squam Lake. We hiked up the red trail and hiked back on the green trail. The red trail was more challenging than the green trail, but after the strenuous hike up and the rewarding view, the hike down was a leisurely stroll back to Pinehurst Rd. Naturally we celebrated with a soft serve ice cream cone from Riverside Restaurant in Ashland!
