Despite the daunting name, the hike through Rattlesnake Canyon is actually quite a peaceful one. You are no more likely to see a rattlesnake here than on any other trail in the area. A shady refuge on a sunny day, this trail winds its way up Rattlesnake Canyon, loosely following the creek for a gradual uphill to Tin Can Meadow. From here you can take in the view and retrace your steps home or continue onto the Tunnel Connector Trail to hike into the Santa Ynez Mountains.
