To access this trail use Rattlesnake Rim, either by going up the switchbacks immediately below the trail, or at the further western side of Rattlesnake Rim (for more mileage). Look for the rock cairn that marks the start of the trail (not to be mistaken by the rock cairn for Turkey Spur). This trail feels like a lot more miles than it actually is.
The trail weaves along and just below the rim, undulating up and down through timbered drainages and small meadows. Closer to the end of the trail, expect to hit the more rugged sections of the trail, including a few large rocky step-down.
