Where to go: As you walk on the River View Trail along the Buffalo River one may see the start of the leaves changing. The river this time of year is beautiful.

What you'll see: This time of year is the end of summer and the start of fall, what you can see at Buffalo River State Park are the colorful flowers in the prairie. Colors ranging from yellows to purples.

Also of interest: Right after sunrise and just after sunset as you walk along the Prairie View Trail one could see many Whitetail Deer feeding.

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.
