Winter Chanterelle (Craterellus tubaeformis) - The winter chanterelle, pictured in the photo, is one of the most common edible mushrooms found in the park and often grows in clusters, most often on mossy areas and rotting wood. The mushrooms are small, thin, and trumpet-shaped with a brownish cap, hollow, and waxy-looking stalk.
Golden Chanterelle (Cantharellus formosus or Cantharellus cascadensis) - Another, less common, edible mushroom in the park (not pictured) is the golden chanterelle. These are larger, fleshier mushrooms compared with the winter chanterelles, and more golden in color.
