Rattlesnake Ledge


Day Hike - Rattlesnake Ledge

A weekday excursion to a busy weekend destination. I've avoided this trail because of the crowds but it's time to check it off the list. Also plan to visit the Middle and Upper ledges

We will meet at the trailhead at 8:45am, ready to hike at 9:00am.  Once registration closes, participants will receive detailed meet up & hike information.  In the interim, feel free to contact the hike leader if you have any questions. 

Please make sure you have recently done a hike with comparable elevation gain, as we will move at a steady pace.  This is a new destination for me, however, I'm confident we can navigate this route.
