ⓘ Rattlesnake Canyon (Colorado)

Rattlesnake Canyon is a scenic area within the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness which in turn forms the core of the Bureau of Land Management administered McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area in west central Colorado. The canyon contains nine natural arches, the second highest concentration of such arches in the United States, after the much better known Arches National Park.

Access to the canyon or tense seven miles from Pollock bench trail or the black ridge access road. The latter is achieved through the adjacent Colorado national monument. These dirt roads are open seasonal and should only be done in a high clearance four-wheel drive vehicle in dry conditions due to steep, rocky grades.

Arches loop trail descends, and then wrap-around bench in the canyon. He runs six arches before arriving at the cedar tree arch. A little difficult climbing on steep slopes of Sandstone and moqui steps leads to the top of the canyon and the trail spur that closes the circuit.
