Snakes, you either love them or hate them. Several species inhabit the Sicily Island Hills. The photograph below is of canebrake rattlesnake observed in April by Kelby Ouchley and friends along the road near the trail head to Rock Falls.

Snake bites or other injuries that could occur as you trek the rough terrain of the Sicily Island Hills, are all the more reason why it is highly advisable not to travel alone in this area. The help of a friend during a serious situation in these remote hills could save your life. Learning how to deal with snake bites is something too many people put off. Know before you go out in the woods.
