There were plenty of parking spaces at 9:00 at the north trailhead for our 3 hour hike before we visited the Mushroom Festival. We hiked on back trails (7, 4, and 2) to the summit. Our quiet morning quickly picked up sensory speed when we entered the festival area to a bustle of music, food carts, mushrooms, coffee, and quite a few of the 4000 people who attended. All of the hikers eventually made it back to their cars and had no trouble avoiding the traffic jams entering the festival. There was a plea for the hike to be on the schedule next October. About festival tickets: Darko and Kathy had tickets from volunteering the day before. Others purchased tickets online to avoid waiting.Members: Janet Jacobsen, June Sutterfield, May Fogg, Darko Sojak, Evelyn Nagy, Kathy Randall, Caroline Moore, Dorene Steggell. Nonmembers: Cynthia Poindexter.
