The Rattlesnake Canyon Trail emerges out of the Burns Canyon Trail in Big Bear. On this trail you find a shelf road which passes along the Rattle Snake Canyon and where the surface is rocky yet firm. You can pass easily through this section.

For the campers, there are some good spots between Rattlesnake Canyon and Rose Mine midway by the trail. There are many tailing heaps and stone foundations of the mill along the place.

This trail moves along forest road 2N02 to the north towards Big Bear Lake. You will encounter Arrastre Creek along the way which is shallow enough to cross. The end of this trail is at the Baldwin Lake Road, 4 miles east of Big Bear Park.
