Note: The Split Rock Wild Forest is known for having timber rattlesnakes, which can often be seen sunning themselves at lookouts and along the trail. Negative encounters with humans are not likely as these animals are easily spooked, but it is highly advisable to keep pets on a leash and to never approach or corner a timber rattlesnake. If you or your pet has been bitten, seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
