Have you ever wondered whether your favorite CATS trail is a chanterelle goldmine or a porcini paradise? Hike the Black Kettle Farm Trail with Ari Rockland Miller, a.k.a. The Mushroom Forager, and learn mushroom ID skills while discovering the trail's mycological denizens. If you are lucky, you may discover a patch of gourmet mushrooms that will fruit for decades!
Black Kettle Farm Nature Trail is an easy to moderate 1.5-mile loop. The hike goes through woods, up and down a rocky slope, and crosses a stream, wetlands, and fields.
