Rattlesnake Creek has partially recovered from past flood damage. The alder canopy is symptomatic of a "channel reset" caused by massive flood damage in 1964. The changes in width to depth ratio caused by such an event can lead to lingering elevated water temperatures. It joins the South Fork Trinity River near Forest Glen.
