Beautiful day for a short trip up Rattlesnake! Started the trail at 10AM and the parking lot looked half full, which wasn't too bad for a Friday. Took us an hour up and we sat at the top for about an hour, then only 45min back down to the lake to soak up more sun. Trail is in great condition and is a fairly easy hike with a few steep parts, but these are expected with the elevation increase. I've done Rattlesnake 2x this year and have only gone on a weekday, which I think is the trick to really enjoying the mountain and vistas without the weekend mob!
