Where to go: The vibrant color has faded to rusty brown.
While much of the oak leaf canopy is still intact on the area ridge tops, small shrubs on the forest floor provide the last isolated splashes of orange and yellow.
Though the forest is past peak color, the opened views provide a great backdrop for late fall hiking.

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.
