Rattlesnake Lodge Hike

Rattlesnake Lodge Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This fun little trek takes the Mountains-to-Sea Trail to the relics of a mountain retreat by the name of Rattlesnake Lodge, built by one of North Carolina’s earliest national park proponents.

First, you will leave a mountain gap, then switchback up Bull Mountain, passing open rock slab slopes presenting views of the Swannanoa River valley and adjacent mountains. Reach the ruins of Rattlesnake Lodge after a gentle uptick where you can explore this highland retreat that once included a pool, water-driven generator, and even a tennis court!"
