This trail is maintained for foot and horse traffic only, since it is located in the Wenah-Tucannon Wilderness. The trail starts off in a wooded area and climbs steadily for a mile. The next 1 1/2 miles is steep and rocky with many switchbacks. Towards the top, the trail evens out and follows along the ridge top to the Indian Corral Area.
The Rattlesnake Trail is a lightly used trail because of its steepness and dryness. Water is available for stock at the bottom, and there are springs along the ridge top.
A 13 mile loop may be made by going up Rattlesnake Trail to Indian Corral Area, coming down the Panjab Trail #3127 to Panjab Trailhead, and traveling the main road 3 miles back to Panjab Campground.
Directions: From Pomeroy, Take Highway 12 and turn south on the Tucannon River Road. Follow the road for 45 miles to where road Y's. Take Road #4713 for 100 yards and turn left into campground. The trail takes off where a huge log crosses the stream.
