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.
