Dave Riebel, 67, remembers growing up near what is now known as the east loop of the Lehigh Portland Trails built on the site of a former cement plant and quarry.

It was a bit hazardous back then.

He recalled playing “cowboys and Indians” when he was 12, and he rested his arm on something he thought was a rock. It turned out to be a water moccasin that “couldn’t help but bite me, twice,” Riebel said. Three years later, he was bitten by a copperhead while hunting not far from the same site.
