Lake — River/Creek — Swimming — Wildlife
The trail is too overgrown for running.
Rattlesnake Creek Trail is overgrown and in poor condition; route-finding skills are required. The creek crossings are shallow and easily crossed. The last 3/4 mile of the trail is known as Papoose Scramble, and is a very difficult climb to the lake.
Douglas fir, rattlesnakes, bears.
