There’s great mushroom picking up here. Starting in the late summer, chanterelles, matsutake, boletus, morels, shaggy mane, pig’s ear, hen-of-the-woods, brain mushrooms all start to appear. Come up in the fall, and you’ll see mushroom pickers all along the road. In fact, many guests have found mushrooms right along the trails around Alta Crystal Resort. Of course, the edible ones are mixed with the poisonous ones, so you’ll want to make sure you positively identify any you eat.
