Rattlesnake Ledge (local hikes series)

This is a beautiful hike with a gorgeous view at the top. It is off of I-90 at exit 32 around the North Bend area. I am not sure if you need a Discover Pass for this area but my guess is you do. The hike is about 4 miles round trip and consists of fairly steep terrain with numerous switchbacks. From the get go you gain more than 1000 feet over 1.5 miles. After walking through mostly forested area, you suddenly summit along the rock ledge. You get a majestic view of Rattlesnake Lake along with the Snoqualmie River Valley. This hike is pretty difficult for beginners but is well worth it when you get to the top. Bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic with a view.
