A woman bitten by a rattlesnake Wednesday at Mount Falcon Park suffered a severe reaction, according to Indian Hills Fire Chief Don Schoenbein.

Susan Schwartz, 59, was hiking alone on the Devil’s Elbow Trail when she was bit in the leg by a rattlesnake about 11:50 a.m. June 24. She was wearing shorts.

Schoenbein said Schwartz wrapped a constricting band above the bite and walked about 1½ miles to the west parking area along Picutis Road off Parmalee Gulch Road, where she found a park ranger who called 911.
