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.

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.
