I have never found a hallucinogenic mushroom in Colorado. It has been done though, just not by me. I'll talk to some friends of mine and get back to you with any helpful suggestions.

From the rules thread:

4. Do NOT ask what mushrooms can be found growing in your state, this information can easily be found in the Mushroom Hunting FAQ.

Regions in Colorado are variable, due to the extreme differences in altitude. The main season for mushroom hunting here is from late July to early September. For the spring mushrooms the season is late April to early June.

What reports have you seen of active species in Colorado that aren't mentioned in the FAQ? It helps if the person doing the identifying is somebody who actually knows how to identify mushrooms accurately. I regularly meet people in the woods who don't know how to identify mushrooms, and many of them are picking mushrooms to eat. It's frightening.

Happy mushrooming!

At capsandstems.com, the main list of species is the one of species identified at the 2001 Mushroom Fair. There is only one active species on the list - at least that's all I saw running through it real quick. Since I sat by Dr. States and help identify the mushrooms on that list, I can say that the mushrooms we got that year were unusual for Colorado (that was the driest year ever recorded here). There were very few mushrooms, and the ones we got included a lot of species we don't normally see.

Although active species do occur here, they aren't terribly common. They also don't tend to occur in large numbers.

As far as places to find forests, look on any map of the state that includes the national forests. Large percentages of those are public lands, where you can go and hunt mushrooms. The FAQ here on the Shroomery is a good list of those species that have been found in Colorado. Some of those are rare mushrooms that you are extremely unlikely to ever find.

Happy mushrooming!
