    Rattlesnake Ridge trail branches from the Lost Coast Trail near Flat Creek in case you want to do a side trip to climb King Mountain or join the coast trail here after doing the mountain.
    Rattlesnake Ridge Trail (King Crest Trail - Beach) , 5.7 miles, 3600 ft. descent
    Most of this trail burned in 2003. Vegetation on this ridge regrows rapidly so hikers may have to bushwhack. This trail heads off of the King Crest Trail 2.8 miles south of the North Slide Peak Trailhead. It is recommended only for adventurous backpackers who don't mind some bushwhacking and stream crossings. Follows brushy Rattlesnake Ridge before descending through old-growth forest to Big Flat Creek. Ferns and mosses line the boulder choked channel of Big Flat Creek, which you must cross twice on the way to the coast. You will find a year-round spring at Bear Hollow Camp after leaving King Crest Trail. blm.gov/nlcs_web/sites/ca/st/en/prog/nlcs/King_Range_NCA/recreation/trails.html
