Description

Lil Rattler is another fun section of singletrack. It starts above the upper trailhead and climbs easy up towards the backside of S Mountain. When it hits Spiral Drive keep sharp left and ctoniue pedaling up around the toe of a slope.

From here the trail climbs gently to the intersection with Rd 173 where you can connect to North Backbone or Backbone.
