Training hike, part of Rattlesnake Mountain ridge hike in 2010 to earn requirements for the Hiking Merit Badge.
Hiked with my fiancee (now wife!) and it was a crowded trail but it was a weekend. Hit on a weekday and you'll probably be fine. Sweet views.
This is a nice, easy trail with a big view pay off at the top. It was insanely busy though. I felt like I was on an ant hill. Entirely too crowded (with many hikers who didn't seem to be very acquainted with trail etiquette). But the views from the top are lovely. It's worth it to head a little ways up the trail to the middle or upper ledge. It's much quieter up there with even better views.
Climbed during a volunteer trail work party with the Mountains-to-Sound Greenway. I recommend doing these once in a while to give a deeper appreciation for these amazing trails :)
Easy hike close to Seattle. Fun if you want to get out for a quick hike with a decent view.
encountered more people on the trail than the interstate. still didn't spoil those wonderful views though :)
Very windy on the ledges. We then continued on the trail all the way to the other side of the mountain. Came this close to needing snowshoes, but the snow was iced over just enough to not need them.
Quick little hike with a big reward of views. Was a clear day, and couldn't have been more pretty. Quite a few people on the ledges even on a weekday.
Great hike with CascadeCohen
It was a great hike nice view of lake and surrounding mountains. Trail was way to crowded with people (I felt like i was at Wal-Mart). It is the top 10 most popular hikes in Washington.
Too many people on this one.
Just getting it in the things I have done, not sure when I did it but its an easy trip, good for families. Passed like 296 people coming down one trip
Makes for a great trail run, or you can do the whole of the ridge and make a day out of it
Hiked up here with my one year old in the baby backpack. Extreme!
Don't stop at the first ledge. There are two more.
Despite the wind, rain, and low visibility there was still a good number of hikers out today. Trail was in good condition.
Great spot for some beers.
My first time up was up over the ledge rock climbing. When I poked my head over the top a blast of cold snow hit me in the face. I remember that more than the climb. Trail map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/snoqualmie_pass/rattlesnake_ledge/north_bend_219.htm
Nice views. Lots of people with dogs and a few trail runners. Still fun to be hiking.
Nice views of Mt Si and Rattlesnake Lake
