First Wildflowers, Mushrooms and Newts in Huddart Park (Woodside)

Join Joerg Lohse along with Edgewood docents and mushroom enthusiasts Janice Rusniak and Lara Fox to see the very first wildflowers of the year. Huddart Park features fetid adder’s tongue (Scoliopus bigelovii), a member of the lily family, in full bloom since the beginning of January. There will be little else in bloom as we hike a 1.5-mile loop on mostly level trails through a variety of trees and shrubs. However, this woodland supports an equally large variety of mushrooms that help with the breaking down of dead forest materials. At this time of the year, newts roam the trails and we will be looking for them as well.

Bring fluids and lunch, rain gear and good footwear. Hiking poles are helpful as the trails can be slippery when wet. Heavy rain cancels. For more information contact Joerg Lohse at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Directions: Drive west on Hwy. 84 from either Hwy. 101 or I-280 and head through Woodside, turn right on Kings Mountain Rd, look for Huddart Park and turn right. As the entrance booth is likely not staffed in January, bring exact change to pay the $6 parking fee at the vending machine. After paying, turn right and drive to the Zwierlein picnic area, where we will meet near the restrooms.
