Seasonal Notes for Rusk
Summer & Fall
Allow extra time in the warmer months to navigate Rusk’s famously thick nettle stands. Clothing can help but the terrain is very steep and uneven, so it’s easy to take an extra-painful tumble. Pack Benadryl and if alcohol swabs are part of your hiking kit, keep a few handy in your pocket; they’re pretty good at clearing the worst of the sting.
