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.

It was a good idea to bring trekking pole and waterproof hiking shoes .. Generally speaking the trail not that bad . There were snow on the top . Just slow a little bit when it was muddy and wet condition. Much better than summer time . No big crowds and no big noise . It was very peaceful on the Monday holiday.enjoy so much!!

Great little hike today. Saw maybe 30 people - so still popular - but at least not the crowds that I hear the summer draws. Some people were doing it with just boots, but I was sure happy to have my spikes - needed them right out of the car. Plenty of snow the entire way. Fun perspective getting to all three ledges.
