Rattlesnake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The first part of the loop is all fire road, rolling through scenic El Morro Canyon. At the back of the canyon, a mile-long grade ascends to the ridgeline. Continue along the fast and forgiving Fence Line Trail, cranking toward Red Tail Ridge. The path down Red Tail Ridge starts fast, narrows to a brush-lined singletrack, then ends with the rocky, rutted Rattlesnake descent. The trail dead-ends at a utility-pole access road that dips and then climbs to No Name Ridge. The ridge road rolls toward the ocean; a smooth, gradual descent ends just above the parking lot."
