Are there any bobcats, bears or rattle snakes to be ware of?
We saw a diamond back rattle snake almost within the first five minutes of walking around. It is a beautiful park with incredible desert scenery.
The only thing we saw was a couple lizards. However, that wildlife exists but are more afraid of us typically, especially if they hear you.
We did not experience any of the above and were not advised of bear or bobcat. We were on the lookout for any type of snakes!
Have not had any encounters with any...I do stay on the popular hikes...Enjoy!
Actually, yes, we ran into (almost literally!) a Western Diamondback. We did an archeology hike which took us 'off trail' (we went cross country at some points). Our group was quite stretched out; I was about halfway back in the whole group. The man behind me shouted, 'SNAKE!' I looked quickly to my left and there was the diamondback, slithering into a bush about 6' from me. What surprised me was that no one ahead of us noticed him! I got some great pics. Looks like it was about 6-8' long based on how wide he was.
