Great hike. Bungee jumping was amazing. Bring a jacket as it's cold at the bridge when the sun isn't shining on it. Bring extra shoes and socks as they will get wet.

Highly Recommend doing this hike!! It's not super difficult either! The views are amazing the whole time and the bridge (and bungee jumping) is fun to see! You do cross the river a few times which is refreshing (at least for your feet)! One of my favorite hikes!

Rattlesnake Peak Trail

They ain't lying when they say it's a tough hike. I went up to the peak for the second time 1/30 and the first time in October. I had tried it in April and turned back at the saddle (Graveyard Saddle?). I think that hiking this on a warm clear day would be a true suffer fest.
Look for the mile marker 3.39, the scramble up to the overgrown old road and the start of the hike is just before it. If you turn the corner and see the tunnel turn back you've gone too far and you'll probably see the scramble up to the trail. Once you get off the road it gets tough and stays tough. Follow the road, cross the wash and when you reach an open area where the road forks straight ahead a or to the right go left and up.
The "trail" goes up and up. Follow the ridge. It's tough to get lost, but look for cairns. As long as you follow the ridge you'll get to the summit. Eventually.
Eventually you'll reach a rocky narrow saddle before Baby Rattlesnake. This part is steep to the right and wicked steep to the left. Take care.
For your sins, right past the saddle the trail drops down steeply and then up Baby Rattlesnake, cursing every foot of elevation you lost.
It ain't over at Baby Rattlesnake either. It's onward and upward with a couple of sections where you're sure your almost done on to reach them and see there is still further to go.
Finally you'll reach the summit and reap the reward. It's tough to appreciate the views when you're working your way up, but once at the summit the views are awesome.
Relax and enjoy. You worked hard enough for it.
The way back down is steep and loose. Poles are helpful. I've fallen and broken poles every time on this trail, and usually end up falling in
a yucca too.
It seems like a long walk down and it does
take some time. The stats don't do justice to the hike. I clocked it at about 9 miles, and 2.5 of that are on a road. But it ain't an easy 9 miles. This is a tough short hike.
Take more fluids than you think you'll need. Do it while it's cool. Overcast is good too. There is absolutely no shade on this burnt out ridge. Still it's an accomplishment and a great hike.

It's a great work out and very rewarding but the directions posted on here are to somebody's house so I would advise to get your own directions .

Awesome trail! We're going back again to finish hiking the trail. My 10 year old daughter loved it! She's quite a cute hiking buddy and very spontaneous...she loves a challenge, climbing rocks, trees, and crossing the river was her favorite part of the hike! 100% fun!

love the scenery, first time I ever hiked this trail, if your planning to come here please wear HIKING SHOES! NOT RUNNING SHOES, I made the mistake of wearing running shoes to this trail, worse mistake ever, my feet hurt and felt very sore after I completed this trail, there's many rocks your will be crossing the lake at least 2-3 times, there's no directions on how to get to the actual bridge, if you know some one that knows the trail please ask for direction or go with some one who knows the trail on your first time, we got lost for about 30 minutes until we got help. overall this trail is amazing really amazing view once you reach the bridge and hike down to the lake to see all the people bungee jump off the bridge.
