With COVID-19 closures being posted all over the National Forests and BLM lands, and with the Stay At Home order in place until further notice, it is advised that you not take unnecessary trips right now. However, we understand that hiking and being outdoors is what keeps many of us mentally sound and healthy, so if you do choose to hike, please stay close to home and DO NOT stop in any small towns!

In this week's new video I talk all about poison oak, poison ivy and poison sumac, how to identify them, avoid them and what to do to treat a rash if you do get one while you're hiking or backpacking.
Hike of the month:
The mid-section of the Lawler trail to Rock Knob is one of the coolest hikes near Eugene! This 5.6 mile low-traffic trail takes you through an absolutely magical forest and up to two incredible viewpoints where you can see to the east all the way to Fuji Mountain, as well as to the west all the way to Marys Peak!
