For today’s mountain spotlight, staying very close to home in Reno, Nevada. Rattlesnake Mountain is a small volcanic cone set directly south of the airport and is part of the Huffaker Hills. There is a park with walking trail up Alexander Lake Road (accessed near McCarran and Longley). It is a hidden treasure amidst the city bustle.
