Where to go: Plantings at the entrance, Beaver Creek Valley Trail, Switch Back Trail overlook and Plateau Rock Trail.
What you'll see: View the changing tree canopy on trails in the park. The meandering Beaver Creek Trail is a lovely and easy hike to see the fall colors. More challenging but worth the hike is the overlook on Switch Back Trail which provides an excellent view of the wild valley as the trees turn beautiful yellow and orange colors. Vistas on Plateau Rock Trail are also very picturesque.
Also of interest: Fall flowers & grasses near the park office plantings are worth checking out as they turn for fall, look close to see the pollinators as well!Last updated: September 2, 2015
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.
