Went for a hike to Rattlesnake Ledge on Saturday. I'd visited this place a year ago. The trails are basically a day hike with clear instructions that overnight camping is not allowed, and there are no camping sites. The first stretch is from Rattlesnake Lake to Rattlesnake Ledge that's about 1.9 miles. The next, to East Lake is around 2.4 miles, and the Snoqualmie Trail head is a further 6.8 miles, so roughly a one-way hike of 10 miles (I don't know if anyone does it in a day).

Anyway the last time, I started out around 3p, and hence could only reach the Ledge. This time around, started a little early, it took me about 5 hours of hiking to do the entire trek upto East Lake but was so worth it!
