Hike into a lightly used portion of the William O. Douglas Wilderness, along the very scenic Rattlesnake Canyon, beneath the rugged cliffs of Timberwolf Mountain. Although the weather and lack of snow in spring and early summer seem to make this an inviting route for that time of year, the creek crossings can be very difficult and dangerous. This route is very rough in places, so good hiking boots are a necessity. You must cross Rattlesnake Creek several times, making sandals or some other type of water shoes very useful. Though not very common, rattlesnakes are present along this trail, so be aware of the possibility of encountering one.
