We saw what used to be some trail signs at the end of the road where it's been clearcut, but they didn't have any writing or markings on them. We went up to the tree line about 20 feet on what looked like a path, but couldn't find the trail.

Yeah, in the past is was tricky to know where to go to get on the trail. I'm sure over the past seven years of closure the trail entrance has been covered over. Probably have to walk a little, drive a little, cut a lot of blow down to get through the first time. At least the 1501 has been re-opened, last year or so it washed out I believe

I'll wait until it's posted open now that I know it's status before I'll do that. The 1501 rd was so nice, we didn't notice it had been washed out or anything. The dirt section of 1503 looked like it was just graded also.

Can someone "in the know" explain the vehicle size restrictions for this new trail? I have read what they are, just hoping for some clarification.

I heard from a 'purty cat' that it was tight for Rubicon type jeeps? I haven't heard of any width restrictions, but in the past it was a small wheel base, narrow trail...hopefully some one in the know will post up

They announced that they have put a size limit on the Little Rattlesnake of 75 inches wide and 95 inches long; the trail will be one way from the bottom to the top for 4X4ís; motorcycles and quads will be able to go both ways.

No problem. I knew about it because I was at the R4 meeting. Looks like my XJ has to stay home on this run.
I hope my high geared CJ can do this trail since I have been waiting years to do it.

Default Update Little Rattlesnake Trail

TWIG Meeting in Naches - Little Rattlesnake Trail and Naches Ranger District announced that they have put up a size limit on the trail of 75" wide adn 95" inches long. The trail will be one-way from bottom to top for 4x4s, motorcycles and quads; both ways, but wonder where they are going to go when they met eachother on the trail due to extreme tightness? Thats what we know.
