North Bend Recreation
The Rattlesnake Lake and Ledge Trail Park is over 120 acres about four miles southeast of the city of North Bend. The name "rattlesnake" for the area was a mistake as an early surveyor of the area mistook the rattle of a native seed pod plant for a rattlesnake. There are no known rattlesnakes in Western Washington state. The lake has a park area for picnics and parking. The rattlesnake ledge trail is a two mile hike one way to the top of Rattlesnake Ridge. The elevation climb is almost 1,200 feet with numerous switchbacks.
