    Rattlesnakes in Holderness

    Hey Lakes Region hikers - Anyone know if the Rattlesnake area trails are still closed? We went over that way last weekend only to find them closed - would like to get over there this weekend if they're open.
    Thanks ahead of time for the info!

    Facebook proved to be faster - the trails are indeed still closed

    Man, when I saw this title, I thought you were saying there are rattlesnakes found in Holderness!

    Now that would have been an active thread!

    There's a crop of Timber Rattlers over near Rutland VT though.

    At one time there were several rattlesnake colonies in NH including Wantastiquet, but most have quietly disappeared over the years

    There is still one which F&G keeps secret to avoid extirpation, so I can't say if it's Holderness or not :-)

    The rattlesnake place near Rutland VT had a geocache moved by managers as the hider accidentally located it in a prime rattlesnake hangout
