We’ve had some reports of poison ivy on some sections of trail. It has always been around but has been noticed closer to the trail in some locations. Before you go hiking, please make sure you’ve covered your feet and lower legs. As always, unless you’re sure it’s not dangerous, don’t touch, even with gloves or shoes. The noxious substance in poison ivy (urushiol oil) can also cause reactions via passive transfer – get it on your shoes or pants, and it could then be transferred to your skin.
Happy Hiking 🙂
