It looks like Guelder rose, also called crampbark, that I have recently learned after reading a book on backyard medicinal plants by Matthew and Julie Seal.

They provided an easy recipe to make a decocted tincture from the bark of Guelder rose that had a number of uses if taken internally. It could also be used as a liniment rub for aching muscles.

I have not tried this yet, but I would like to try it for sore muscles if I find enough to safely harvest a small amount of the bark to avoid killing the plants.

High bush cranberry is my guess. Did you see the flower? A little unique in that it has a cluster of white flowers with two distinct sizes, the small ones become the fruit.

Thanks all.  Highbush cranberry is probably it I think, I know they are native here.

I didn't have a chance to see the flowers before the berries were there, I just discovered the bush.
