They were babies just sitting in the middle of the fireroad. Nearly ran over two of them but dodged them just in time. Stupid little suckers didn't even move when I nearly smothered them with my tires. Seriously, I didn't expect snakes to just lay around in the middle of a well traveled fireroad. After traveling 2 miles and seeing five of those critters, I decided to call it a day and head back to my car. Also warned the many parents with their kids hiking to watch out. It makes me nervous when little kids run around on those trails during snake season. So yeah, just watch out everyone and be safe when riding.
