At a Glance
If you’re thinking of “taking up serpents” (Mark 16:18), you might want to make a pilgrimage to Moccasin. Forget about the poisonous cottonmouths in the local streams. It’s this DH’s Twistiness and Engineering that pose a biblical challenge for any aspiring snake handler. After quietly lurking along Moccasin Creek, this road’s smooth-scaled Pavement suddenly strikes up along the dry cliff of a remote and dangerous canyon. Should you survive, it backs off just as quickly, stalking you with straights and barely-curves all the way through the sleepy crossroads of Coulterville. But just past town, this viper, threatened by unspoiled mountains and steep gorges, strikes again, this time releasing its full venom. A guardrail-less road edge hisses at your tires as the road writhes along the glorious rock and shrub-studded cliffs of the steep, remote Merced River gorge. Mishandling the coils up to the celestial viewpoint just north of Bear Valley could mean certain death. But like Mark says, “They shall take up serpents; and it shall not hurt them.” Just pray he meant you.
