|Placed Date||Sep 23 2006|
Take Webb's Mills Rd (Rt 85) North toward Rt 11. Will pass Meadowbrook Farm Orchards on right. Look for RP Harmon's greenhouse on right after this. Park in lot directly across from Harmon's for Rattlesnake Mountain hike. Will see a sign in parking area. This is moderate hike, approx. 1 hr.
Follow trail into woods. Where it forks, go left. Cross 2 fallen trees. Bear left & continue heading uphill. Follow trail straight to the 2nd path on right. Watch for the tree bent over the trail after it begins to get steeper/narrower. Go under this and continue climbing to big boulder in the middle of the path surrounded by many stones. Stop here and look to your left. Little Ant (box 1) lies hidden under a slanted rock leaning against another rock.
Continue climbing up the mountain until you come to the second beautiful view on your left. This will be an open grassy area with large areas of exposed granite. Look to your right for a hollow stump the height of a woman. You will find Big Lizard at it's base (box 2). Enjoy the view! Go back down the same way.
