Mushroom Hunt at Boxford State Forest in North Andover

Boxford State Forest in North Andover is a great place to hunt for mushrooms. Alot of open space and well beaten easy to manuver trails. Easy to find. From 114, travel west on 114 until you see a sign that says "Welcome to North Andover" the first right after the sign is Sharpeners Pond Road. Follow Sharpeners Pond Rd, to the very end and you will be in the parking lot of Boxford State Forest. Park  in the lot, or along Sharpeners Pond Rd. Please contact me with any questions.

    Big group of really enthusiastic foragers; we practically had the whole state forest to ourselves, and we found a LOT of mushrooms.

    Hi, I am new here. Very excited about tomorrow's meetup. Could you give me a heads-up about how long I should plan for the meetup? 2 hours, 4 hours? Thank you!

    There is an overnight frost warning. Does this affect the mushroom harvest?

      Maybe, but there will still be some mushrooms to find. At the very least, we will all have a nice walk in the woods.
