For the Love of Mushrooms Walk
Forest Service to offer ‘For the Love of Mushrooms’ walk on August 29
PAGOSA SPRINGS – One of the many benefits of summer rains in Pagosa country is the emergence of a wide variety of mushrooms in the San Juan National Forest. Gretchen from the Forest Service will be leading a walk on Tuesday, August 29 from 9:00 – 11:30 AM to identify mushroom species near the Fourmile Trailhead. This will be a moderate hike with some elevation gain. No reservations are required for this hike. Dress for being outside and bring plenty of water with you.
Directions: Turn north on Lewis Street, then left on Fifth Street (which becomes Fourmile Road). Follow Fourmile Rd. (County Rd. 400/FDR 645) for 13 miles to its end at the trailhead. We plan to meet at the upper parking lot. Trailhead elevation is 9,200 feet.
For additional information, please contact the Pagosa Ranger District at 264-2268 or stop by the office at 180 Pagosa St. Hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
