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.

Decent hike with an amazing view at the end. Kid friendly, not necessarily easy, but not difficult either. My only complaint is regarding the crazy amount of foot traffic this trail has- if you're looking for a peaceful/secluded hike then rattlesnake is not for you. Either way, the lookout made the whole experience worthwhile.

It was beautiful and very easy to navigate. Round trip took about 3 hours. Not from around here and it exceeded my expectations.

This hike is one I always take when I return to Washington from college each year. It had everything great: shade, trees, sun, and VIEWS. It's pretty busy, so be prepared to share the trail. There is the popular ledge of course, but I like to hike a bit more to a higher, smaller ledge for quiet privacy. Definitely a favorite

There is a lot of great wild life on the trail and the ledge has a very good view
