TRAIL DESCRIPTION:
This remote trails passes through a non-wilderness corridor of the Bighorn Mountain Wilderness Area. The sometimes narrow, sandy, and often wet passage through Rattlesnake Canyon is susceptible to flash flood damage. Much of the route here is easy to moderate. Expect tight brush along sections of the trail.

Just before Burns Canyon is reached we’ll turn west on 2N02 to 2N61Y towards Heartbreak Ridge. This difficult part of the route includes narrow canyons, steep shelf roads, large boulders and sharp rocks. Not super difficult but fairly tough. Some aggressive stock vehicles with good articulation might get through, but recovery-strap assistance may be necessary.
Backtracking out along 2N02 we’ll head back to continue traveling down scenic Burns Canyon and exit the trail to paved Rimrock Road, which will take us past Pioneertown, built in 1946 as a movie set for many western movies.
