Rattlesnake Rock

"About the third day they arrived at the larger rock on the west side of the river, and found as many as thrity rattle snakes lying on the rock, sunning themselves. They pushed their canoe to the other shore, and when passing the smaller rock, they discovered on the top a pile of rattle snakes as large as an outdoor bakeoven."
--Philip Tome

This is a small quote from the book Pioneer Life; Thirty Years a Hunter, by Philip Tome.

The parking area for Rattlesnake Rock is what I believe to be the nicest, must stop, parking location on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. By the rock you'll find a very deep fishing, and or swimming hole. As always be careful when walking on the rock.
