Hike in the Woods looking for Mushrooms

  • Anyone want to join me on Sunday looking for mushrooms? They tend to grow best around the full moon, weather is perfect for them. I'm thinking somewhere near Westerly, though haven't decided on a location yet, suggestions welcome. Then afterwards can stop at my house and cook what we find and divide the rest to take home. I will provide info on three types of good beginner mushrooms, photos and some facts, all edible and choice, Hen of the Woods, Sulfure Shelf, and Lion's Mane. Anyone interested feel free to call me, Thanks, Tom[masked] (cell).

    I don't believe I will be able to make it tomorrow. I wanted to, but the day and the night got away from me. I wish you a good foraging trip.

    For those driving the map is correct, the spelling of the road is Canonchett rd, can't seem to correct what was put in by meet-up.
    The parking area is about 2 miles from rt 3, on the left, says Long Pond fishing Access.

    OK, I went out today looked at a few trail heads, in an area I was told might have some mushrooms, decided on a part of the Naragansett trail at long pond. Seems pretty, there are some oaks, so will see if we find anything.
    This will be an in and out hike on the same trail, so distance we will play by ear. Stopping to check the bottoms of larger Oaks not too far from the trail.

    Note anyone that wants to CAR POOL, I will be driving from Westerly, could meet at Benny's or you are welcome to come to my house which is only a mile from Benny's. Leaving here at 10 AM

    Isn't it too late in the season. Most mushrooms come in August??????

      Hi Judy, no these are fall mushrooms, I've picked as late as Dec, but Oct, is the best month usually, though its been dry, there is one growing in my backyard. I even have a few in my frig.
