Rainbow Mountain is west of City of Huntsville and islotated from the other nearby limestone ranges. It has two highest near neighbors. Drake Mtn to the NE and Weeden Mtn to the SE within the Redstone Arsenal. It appears that the peak of Weeden is slightly closer to the peak of Rainbow than is Drake thus, using Weeden at approximately 1220 the saddle between these two ranges appears to be in the plains bewteen them near Indian Creek at elevation around 600 plus or minus and thus used as the connecting col.

The peak of Rainbow is a clear spot where the water tank is located just outside of the Rainbow Mountain Land Trust Public Trails area in Madison, AL
