Planning Your Trip

Making The Most of the RMC


Whether You're Coming for a Day or for the whole RMC, below are our tips for ensuring your trip is as safe and easy as possible

Directions


The Radical Mycology Convergence will be held at Brown Bottle Farm in Mulino, Oregon.

Brown Bottle Farm is located just a short drive away from Portland and Salem, making your trip to the RMC a breeze. Below are the best options for arriving, though be sure to buy your ticket in advance as tickets will not be sold on site.


BY CAR / RIDESHARE

Brown Bottle Farm is a 20–40 minute drive from central Portland, depending on traffic. The farm address is easy to locate on Google maps and GPS service is accessible during the entire drive for most cel phone plans.

All cars planning to park at the RMC will need to purchase a Parking Pass in advance of their arrival as none will be sold on site. All Full Pass registrants will receive access to a free online rideshare board to help coordinate carpooling.


BY PLANE

The Portland International Airport (PDX) is approximately 30 miles north of Mulino and is the best option for most people traveling by plane. From there you can rent a car or use Uber or Lyft to find a driver to take you to the RMC.


BY TRAIN OR BUS

Portland is a stop for several Amtrak and Greyhound lines. Both stations are located in downtown Portland where you can rent a car, or hire an Uber or Lyft driver to get you to the RMC.


BY BIKE

Mulino is a fairly straight shot down highway 213 from the city of Clackamas. Some areas of the road are not well marked for bicyclists, while other areas have limited shoulder space. Safety-conscious daytime riders are likely to have limited hassle, though caution is advised.

Accomodations


TENT CAMPING

Space for tent camping is provided with all full, volunteer, and vendor passes for the nights of October 6, 7, and 8 (Thursday–Sunday morning). The camping area is in a multi-acre field that offers ample room for space between tents, with shaded areas being limited. Attendees wishing to stay and help with the RMC clean-up on Monday, October 10, can also camp on-site on October 9 for free.

Tent camping is not included with day passes.



Car CAMPING

A limited number of car camping spaces are available on site for an additional fee of $50 for vehicles not exceeding 8 feet in width and 20 feet in length, and $100 for vehicles over 9 feet in width and up to 32 feet in length.

Car camping passes must be purchased when you register for the RMC and will not be available for purchase on-site. Please plan accordingly.


STAYING OFF-SITE

For those wishing to stay off-site, The Stagecoach Inn in Molalla is approximately 15 minutes away from the RMC, and private accommodations are available for rent on Airbnb.com. There are no suggested public camping areas close to Brown Bottle Farm.
