Description

Rattlesnake Mountain is home to several traprock climbing areas, one of which is Rattlesnake Cliff.

Getting There

The best approach is to park on Rt. 6 (see map coordinates above) and follow the blue-blazed Metacomet Trail south. You will encounter Porcupine Wall, Green Wall, Will Warren's Den, and then Rattlesnake Cliff.

I asked the CFPA about the signs and the intent is to keep people away from the communication towers and access roads. Climbing access at Porcupine Hole and Greenwall is not affected. May 5, 2017
There are new signs up on the Metacomet Trail here telling hikers to respect private property and stay on the trail. However, people climb here all the time, and I haven't heard of anyone being kicked out for it. Anyone else have any more info?
