The hike to the Rattle River shelter is a nice, gentle ramble through the forest along the shores of the beautiful Rattle River. This one is perfect for younger kids. You can hear the sound of the rushing water as you’re hiking. It’s quite relaxing and peaceful. As you’re hiking along the gentle trail, there are several spots that are good to just sit and watch the river flowing by. There don’t seem to be too many white blazes marking the trail, but, truth be told, it’s so well-defined you don’t need them.
