Rattlesnake Spring Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Rattlesnake Spring is one of the few reliable sources of water in the southern Santa Rosa Mountains. Several dozen bighorn sheep may depend on it for survival during periods of drought. The spring produces a low volume—it’s more like a seep. You shouldn’t count on it as a source for your own drinking needs. On this loop hike, you’ll approach the spring via one route and return via a second route comparable in difficulty. Both routes involve a substantial amount of scrambling. Feel free to reverse the direction of travel from that described here."
