There are many snakes in Prince William Forest Park. They are usually seen sunning themselves on the rocks along Quantico Creek or soaking up the warmth of the pavement on Scenic Drive.
If you see a snake along Scenic Drive or along Quantico Creek, please do not attempt to touch or move the snake. Whether walking or driving, please give the snake a wide berth and continue on your way.
Here are some of the snakes of Prince William Forest Park.
