“Cliffbrake is a multi-use trail that provides access to the rest of the Rattlesnake Ridge trails.”— Mitchell Allen
For more information on The Nature Conservancy of Arkansas and Rattlesnake Ridge Natural Area please visit:
The trail goes back and forth between wider machine-cut singletrack and narrower hand-built singletrack. There are a few alternate lines, including a black diamond skinny that connects 4 large boulders.
Near the top of the mountain, you'll come to a junction where Diamondback takes off to the left. Beyond this junction, Cliffbrake is for runners only. If you would like to see the climbing area or the overlook, just take a short run up this trail through a cliff band.
