Enjoy a leisurely walk up the Rattlesnake on a network of trails tracing the course of the creek. Traverse past secret beaches and quiet swimming holes. Then climb out of the drainage onto the Wallman Trail and crest over Strawberry Ridge. Scents of pines and wildflowers drift on the breeze. From the high point of this hike, descend down into neighboring Spring Gulch. Follow the trail until it reconnects with the Rattlesnake Creek Trail, creating a pleasant half-day journey.
