Some climbers saw a Copperhead in a horizontal crack, and one of them killed it. He thought he was protecting the person. According to the Superintendent of the State Park, it is the wildlife that is protected. People enter, and climbers climb, at their own risk. The risk for killing or "molesting" even poisonous snakes is being cited for a Class 3 Misdemeanor and $166.

The price went up, now $215. Any time daytime temperatures are 80 or more, you should be alert for snakes, usually Black Rat, but possibly Timber Rattler, which no longer rattles and does not need to be in sun, and Copperheads which have been seen on the Three Bears Gully steps as well as Upper Ledge Springs Trail. Be especially wary when going down a slope to find a private place.
