About


East Rattlesnake
Holderness, NH

Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.
The Ridge Trail
The Ridge Trail

Route: East Rattlesnake Trail, Ridge Trail, Col Trail

Mixed bag of early spring conditions, ranging from monorail (supports snowshoes) to hardpack to postholes. West slope of East Rattlesnake had maybe 6-12 inches of snowpack remaining, but the ridge and portions of the Col Trail were closer to 2 feet. Snowshoes still a good idea. I suspect the next sizable thaw will close the Route 113 trails for mud season.

Park outside the private property entranceway (don't block the road!), then follow the road up shortly, taking a left, then a right between two cabins. The East Rattlsnake Trail sign will be a minute or two up the path.
