How do you get there? Looks like West of St. Mary's Glacier area.

Update - found it on traildamage.com

Pay attention to the map in the lower sections as the trail is not signed very well. you can get to some non copacetic spots that seem totally legit very easily.

There is one obstacle climbing out of the creek that can be difficult but the locked 80 should be fine (fun). We've gotten stock 40's over it after a few tries.

The trail can be tight in places..

Look for mushies where you normally would... the lower section of the trail (502.1) has a lot of moisture.

Here are a few that we saw a few years ago near Leadville. Don't know what kind they are but would like to. The 'shrooms in the first two pics were huge with the largest being nearly 16" in diameter.

The upper left pics shows what probably is Boletus - need to see the spores under the cap to be sure. The lower two pics both show a mushroom variety called Amanita Muscaria (aka Fly Agaric) - they are poisonous (and psychoactive). Do not pick them - leave'em alone.

Yeah the brown ones look like Boletus.. but really OLD ones. Probably full of worms.

Other ones are no good as stated above.

That rig you found looks muy beautiful. holy cow.

Default here's one I saw on Sunday

My neighbor just bought a Tacoma so I brought him up to Coney/Middle St. Vrain last weekend. These were all over the place...snapped this one on the side of the trail. I'm not into mushrooms...(anymore ) is this the same kind as the red one above?

Yes - the same poisonous ones as above.
