Mushroom Walk Near Leslie Frost Centre - August 24, 9:00AM
Our walk will be on Crown land close to the Leslie M. Frost Natural Resources Centre. The Sherborne Lake Forest Access Road is 10 km. south of Dorset and about 2 km. north of the Frost Centre. The condition of this road is rough at best but it is fine if you proceed carefully and navigate around the bad spots. After 2.2 km. you reach the Dawson Ponds. There is a cleared area where we will park on the right and a road going off to the left along the west side of Dawson Ponds. This is where we will meet.
We will walk further along the Sherborne Lake Rd. to a trail that leads to the Sherborne Lake Dam. We will be on an old road, closed to vehicles, through a mature forest where there should be a good diversity of mushrooms. There are some moderate hills but it is a pleasant walk in the shade. We will cover about 8 to 10 km. in total. We’ll aim to get back to the cars by noon. We recommend good hiking shoes, long pants, insect repellent, a full water bottle, snacks and a hat. The walk will begin at 9:00 am.
