From the Creekside Camp at mile 235.0, Poodle Dog Bush has been growing all around the trail. It is growing on both sides and in the center of the trail until mile 238.0. It hasn’t flowered, but stands out very distinctly and is tall up to shoulder height. Low down is brown and gets green higher up. No flowers yet, but has a very pungent smell, very similar to that of marijuana. Pay attention and proceed through with caution.
