How is This Experience Unique?
  • Designed for first-time foragers
  • Focused on edibility vs. non-edibility. Memorize scientific Latin names later!
  • Visit a convenient location within a 30-minute drive of downtown Seattle
  • Find tasty mushrooms most people have never even heard of (along with famous ones)
  • We pre-scout the location in advance to ensure we bring you to the best spots. No aimless wandering and wasted time!
  • In the rare event you don’t find many mushrooms on your own, we will still send you home with goodies to savor.
  • “OMG!” Kodak moments so you can share your epic hunt
What’s Included
  • All foraging-related supplies (basket, mushroom knife, nitrile gloves, reference book, and hand warmers)
  • Mushrooms to bring home
What to Wear & Bring
  • Dress for the weather. We suggest a rain jacket, hat, gloves, and hiking boots (strongly recommended).
  • Bring a small backpack and water bottle.
Good to Know
  • Leave Fido, cigarettes, drugs, and booze at home – they’re not invited to this shroom party!
  • Go before you go – there are no restrooms at the trailhead.
  • Mushrooms love rain, and we do too! Our tours operate light rain or shine.
  • Gratuities not required, but they sure do make our day!
Education vs. Mushroom Quantity
  • Education is our first priority with this introductory experience. We’ll equip you with all the skills you need to start a new life-long hobby.
  • We’re not politicians, so we can’t guarantee when, where, or how many mushrooms you’ll find. But with a 95% success rate, we’re pretty darn good at stacking the deck in your favor.
  • Mushrooms come and go with the seasons, so the kinds you’ll find will depend on the time of year. Don’t worry – we’ll show you how to find the good stuff!
  • For a bigger haul or a specific type of mushroom, check out our specialized hunts.

FAQs
What kind of mushrooms will I find?

It all depends on the season! Each mushroom has its own time to shine, so what you’ll find depends on when you visit.

What happens if I don’t find many mushrooms or ones that I like?

Unfortunately, we can’t control Mother Nature, so we aren’t able to offer refunds. In the rare event you don’t find many mushrooms, we’ll still make sure you leave with some goodies to enjoy at home. 

Cancellations
What is the cancellation policy?
  • We get it, life happens. We offer cancellation insurance for $5/ticket at time of purchase. This enables you to cancel up to 72 hours prior to your event. Otherwise sales are final, so if you can’t make it, feel free to send someone else in your place. Our events are super popular so make sure to book early to avoid FOMO!
What if it rains?

Tours operate rain or shine.

Miscellaneous
How physically demanding is this?

We won’t be scaling Mount Everest, but we will be hiking off-trail for up to a mile. Expect to crouch and stand for up to two hours. Dress comfortably and come prepared to have a blast!

Are restrooms available?

Sorry, no restrooms at the trailhead. Make sure to take care of business beforehand or bring your own supplies if you need to go au naturel!

Where do we meet?

Tours meet at a trailhead in Redmond, WA. We will send you the exact meeting location in the tour confirmation email.

What if I don’t have a car?

Rideshare trips are about $85 each way from downtown Seattle. You can save 75% by hopping on public transit to Redmond Town Center. From there, catch an Uber or Lyft to/from the trailhead for about $23 each way.
