That's not many. Seeing so many out riding that way actually neutered my pathological fear of them, given they were either trying to get away from you (blacks) or showing zero interest in your existence (browns).I've been riding around with my eyes closed this year.
Usually I seen snakes quite often, maybe 1 a ride... sometimes multiple each ride.
Total for summer 22-23 is about 5
Did have a brown chase me on Tunnel Vision at Eagle once, that was less fun. May have scored a PB though.
There were some trails that dropped down from Venison that ended up alongside some old dumped cars that had been there for decades, in pretty good nick too (even intact windows). I'll see if I can find some photos....Couple of nice illegal trails built off the side of Bullocks. Venison is a great loop and then some downhill tracks, Twisted gum, Brown Sally and Purgatory.
