Fungal Fun

February 9, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Can you find candlesnuff, bird’s nest, and orange peel along the trail? These are a few of the fungi that docents Chris MacIntosh, Paul Billig, and Marie Faust Evitt hope to discover with you on this non-technical fungus appreciation hike. Hiking Whittemore and Harkins Ridge Trails through different habitats, you’ll notice the sometimes camouflaged and always fascinating fungi which flourish in winter. Bring boots for mud, stamina, and your curiosity. Despite frequent stops, there are some very steep sections of trail on this loop hike with about 1,500 feet of elevation gain.

Where to Meet:

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Skyline Boulevard.  This entrance is next to the now closed Kings Mountain Country Store.  The parking lot is 4.5 miles south of Highway 92, and 8.1 miles north of Highway 84.

Sunday, February 9 9:00am to 4:30pm
Approximate Total Miles: 7
