You've got the start and end of Rattlesnake marked wrong, and you have the beginning of Constrictor marked as Wayne's World. The course is true though. Oh and the actual Sunshine Canyon road is west of Rattlesnake, the road that leads out of the parking lot is NOT the Sunshine Canyon road, I know google has it marked that way but there is a sign on the actual road, and actual topo maps have it marked correctly.

Actual end of rattlesnake 40°16'12.39"N 112°11'47.05"W

Actual start of rattlesnake 40°15'51.69"N 112°12'15.89"W

The start could be off a bit, I'll gps it next time I'm out there.

I think it's a good idea to leave the extra route in between though, the roads can get confusing the first few times you are out there.

Also, in his Constrictor kmz he has Rattlesnake ending right before Con
