I'm not sure where I am allowed to look. I moved to the Nashville area from Oregon two years ago. In Oregon I would go into the national forests and it was okay to simply leave a trail in search of mushrooms. I also searched on federal BLM land. Here in TN, local state parks seem keen on sticking to the trails. I've looked into TVA land and there doesn't appear to be any near Nashville. For morels, I understand I should get out of the basin and I have ideas of which towns to explore near. It's just unclear to me where I can go and start exploring the forests and the land off a trail. I appreciate any general guidance on this.
