Where to go: Hike along the river, or climb to the top of the rock out-cropping.
What you'll see: In the final report of the season - crunchy leaves line many of the parks hiking paths. Go off trail into one of the rivers flood planes for interesting fungal finds.
Also of interest: Fall fishing on the Rainy River is a popular past time. Bring your boat or fish from the shore. Jays and woodpeckers are bountiful fall visitors to the park!Last updated: October 25, 2013
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.
