8th October 2015 – Mushrooms near La Couvertoirade

2014-10-09 13-20-19

This walk starts at La Couvertoirade, leaving to the South on the GR towards Le Cros, then cuts West to return by the GR71 from Le Caylar. We did this walk at the same time last year (2014), and for the same reason – to look for mushrooms! Last year we found numerous sorts – this year the large brown mushrooms were quite easy to find (see picture, edible, though not particularly tasty – best in soup, perhaps), and we found a few field mushrooms (rose des prets) and yellow ceps.

2015-10-08 11-47-22This is a generally easy walk of about 7km on tracks and paths, with a moderate amount of up and down throughout. Part of the return is on a narrower, rocky path that can be a little difficult.
