“Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.”
As the weather begins to cool, it’s becoming easier to take a lovely stroll along Kilgore’s Creekside Trail or take a ride down the Bighead Creek Mountain Bike Trail, but the City of Kilgore reminds you to keep a watchful eye out for snakes along these trails. If you’re walking with your children, teach them about snakes and teach them to look where they step. Keep kids and pets close enough to you that you can keep an eye on their surroundings. Let’s keep ourselves and loved ones safe as we enjoy the beauty of nature in our fair city.
