Where to go:

Maple and Oak trees are still showing color along the drive into the park and the River Trails.

What you'll see:

The maples are showing some beautiful orange, yellow and red color along the park road and south River Trail, while the oranges, reds and rusts color of the oak trees can be seen along the North River Trail.

Also of interest:

It is easy to identify the Oak trees now as they are the trees that still have their red and rusty colored leaves attached.

Special Offer for Park Permits

Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
