I have seen both copperheads and cottonmouths along the Alpharetta Greenway.

Default Snakes are not that fearsome

Ulver, if you leave them alone, they'll clear out! Problem is when you come upon a snake inadvertantly, so keep your eyes open.

Only Eastern Diamondbacks I've seen in the past ten years -- twice - in the countryside near Quitman, both times huge, fat ones, a little larger than a big strong guy's biceps, about five feet long, crossing dirt roads. Remember they eat rodents so they have a job to do that helps us. There's a good size community of water moccasins at the utility easement just west of the gated community 4 miles east of the I-75 overpass on Hwy 84 in Valdosta. They're nearly invisible, until you look at the crooked fat black sticks on the manicured lawn!

Look up photos on the internet to get a fix on what poinonous snakes look like, then just keep your eyes open, hike with a walking stick to probe the area ahead of your feet, and you'll be fine.
