Atop Rattlesnake Ridge great views of the surrounding mountains can be seen including Mount Si and Mount Washington. This is a very popular trail in the summer months. It is a short 30 minute drive from downtown Bellevue or under an hour away from Seattle. Not only does this trail provide you with great panoramic views from atop Rattlesnake Ridge but there is also a great park located down below. Many people come to the use the lake in the warmer months. There are no motored boats or fishing allowed on the lake which makes this place ideal for kayakers and swimmers alike. You can also find several connecting trails within the Rattlesnake Ridge parking area. At the end of the Rattlesnake Ridge trail you can continue on for a full day hike along the Ridge on the East Peak trail or complete the 10 mile trek to Snoqualmie. Additionally you can find the Snoqualmie Valley Trail just as you leave the parking area. This is a great trail if you are looking for a long hike or bike ride. The trail starts south of Rattlesnake Lake and continues up to Duval, over 35 miles of converted railroad to trail.

Amazing view but a lot of people! It's perfect having the lake at the bottom' especially if you have dogs, little dip before and after to cool off :)

Did this hike this morning for a sunrise hike, which in my opinion is about the only time you should ever do this hike on the weekend to avoid massive crowding and its also one of the best places to see a sunrise. We started our hike at 4:10 for a 5:25 Seattle time sunrise and got there with plenty of time. Bring a headlamp and also check out the crack between the rocks when you get to the lower lookout for a little exploring.

Well worn trail that had many hiking families. The trail begins with a fairly intense 2ish mile incline. Next time we'll probably use the bike trail for the first few miles and switch to the hiking trail just before Stan's lookout. It would be less crowded and a less intimidating incline to begin with.
