Beginning at the picnic area at Falls of Lana, the trail passes the lower end of the Aunt Jennie Trail and the junction with North Branch Trail. After climbing for about 1.0 mile, and after passing the upper end of the Aunt Jennie Trail, the trail forks. The Rattlesnake Cliff trail is to the left. (To the right is the Oak Ridge Trail.) When the trail forks again, the left branch leads to the southern part of Rattlesnake Cliff, with a spectacular view of the lakes and the right branch leads to a smaller west-facing set of cliffs.
