Fragrant Sumac berries
Rhus aromatica
The first time I saw this plant I gave it a wide berth on the trail, the three leaflets made it look like something to avoid. The red berries indicate, however, that this plant is not poisonous like its' close relatives, poison ivy and oak (which have brownish-white berries in the fall). The leaves of Fragrant Sumac have an aromatic odor when crushed.
