It's defiantly Poison Oak, the red newer growth and oily leaves are a dead give away.

Those leaves look more like someone or their dog had just pissed on them

The shiny is the oil, the droplets are from the water fall on the other side of the fence.

Wood cutting in poison oak

Guess it doesn't bother me... have made 6 truck loads of oak firewood from a BIG tree that fell in a poison oak patch. Haven't gotten blisters etc yet, but have taken precautions:

Used the tree bark and moss that fell off the wood as it's split as a carpet over the poison oak

Washed hands, arms and head with Dawn dish soap (it takes crude oil off sea birds=cuts oils)

Threw clothes into washer at home immediately upon arrival, even work gloves

Shower right away with dish soap

Cross fingers and have a few beers

Dave
