SIXTI Thanks Sherpa. I'll let you know.
Just waiting on a new set of tires then I'll go there to break them in. If it takes too long. I might just go down to completely shave off my old ones.

Let me know the next time you want to head out there. We'll figure out a time when we're both free and I will lead you there personally.

Unlike Constrictor, Rattlesnake begins in a flat, fairly open area. Because of this, I bet much of it isn't covered in snow (though there may be a few snowy spots, so plan on it just in case). By comparison, Constrictor is higher up in the hills and is surrounded by many more trees... so I bet it is mostly (if not completely) covered by snow. But that's just my guess.

If you've never run Rattlesnake, I'd say the bare minimum equipment is a TJ with at least 2" lift on tires that are 31" or greater. Lockers aren't entirely required, but my wife's former TJ (the yellow SE) did have a LockRite in the rear and I'm sure it helped in a few spots. Even with the 2" budget boost, I still managed to remove one of the factory plastic side steps on this trail thanks to contact with a rock... so be advised. Here is a picture of me in that Jeep exiting the rock garden found near the middle of Rattlesnake:

Though it is hard to tell from this angle, at this point I had already ripped off the step on the passenger side. Fortunately she didn't mind too much.

DerekM Those are detailed directions there! Thank you for taking all the time to explain it. That will make it easier to find. Do you think its snowy up there now?

Sherpa To get to Rattlesnake:

Take Lehi Main street (highway 73) and head west. Pass through Cedar Fort and Fairfield, then continue on after the road curves to the right--now you'll be heading northwest. About a mile or so after this curve you'll see a dirt parking lot on the right side of the road with a wood sign board (not the Rattlesnake sign, but instead a much larger one). This is your turnoff. Here is what it will look like, compliments of Google Maps street view:

Now that you've left the highway, head straight away from the paved road. At the first major "junction" you come to, turn left. This dirt road will lead you straight to Rattlesnake; just be sure you take the right fork whenever you have a choice (I think you do this once or twice). You'll come around a small bend and see the Rattlesnake sign in my post a few above this one. That's the official start of the trail. Here is an aerial view; the trail sign is at the red X:

I'm sorry I don't have exact GPS coordinates. I hope this helps.

DerekM I'm down to go for sure!

shrubeck Yes, it's around the bend. I haven't been out there for a while, but I assume the sign is still there. Maybe we should take a run out there and check

DerekM I went out to find this with a buddy last night and still no good! Is that sign still there? is it up north around the bend?

Hi! I'm new to this forum but very familiar with Rattlesnake (and Constrictor). Are you still trying to find out how to get there? If so, I can assist you.

Just say the word.
