Man, I have a huge fear of snakes too! I've only seen one in the park, it was a small rattler on the Window Trail. (I jumped up on a big boulder and let it pass, my hiking buddy thought it was hilarious).
I've been going to the park at all seasons regularly since 1999, and I've seen exactly one snake there.You're most likely to see a snake in a place where it can warm itself in the sun, which along most of the trails in Big Bend means rocks.Best advice I have is to take a good look at where you're thinking about sitting down. Look under the rock, atop the rock, to either side, and rattle the brush with a trekking pole. Never put your hand where you can't see it. And don't worry too much about 'em.
