Took this hike on a Saturday morning to hopefully get a less-crowded view of Rattlesnake lake! Was a lovely stroll, passing Boxley Creek and the blowout, which had wonderful picturesque views deep into the forest.
We found the trail relatively easy. The first third of the trail was clear, however some parts after the fork (towards the blowout) were victim of some severe overgrowth. The trip to the summit was smooth, but we unfortunately caught some clouds and the beginning of a storm!
Great option in a wonderful area!
