This short loop is only a mile long but boasts several fairly technical obstacles. Consisting of Forest Service roads 2N70Y and 2N69Y, the route begins and ends off of the more heavily used 2N02, Burns Canyon Road in Rattlesnake Canyon. It makes for a nice addition to any run through the area, such as Round Valley, Heartbreak Ridge, or the return trip from Pioneertown or lower Rattlesnake Canyon. Note that the Forest Service calls this loop "Rattlesnake Canyon OHV Road," but here we give it the slightly different name of Rattlesnake Bonus Loop to differentiate it from the well-known section of lower Rattlesnake Canyon, which is more popularly known by that name. Some trail guides call this loop Sidewinder trail, but within So Cal Broncos that would conflict with what we know as Sidewinder, which those outside of SCB call Mottino Wash.
