Where to go: To get a sneak peak at fall colors hike the north east loop on the other side of the highway 61. To get there go under the bridge on either side and cross the river. This large loop can range in a three mile or longer hike traveling on unpaved trails and on hilly terrain. Get to the other side of the ridge and you'll get a glimpse of trees changing red and yellow.
What you'll see: Mushrooms continue to scatter the forest in shocking yellows, reds and oranges. Golden rod is blooming and some trees are starting to change.
Also of interest: Many fall color hikes are taking place throughout September and into October. Check out the Gooseberry Falls State Park website and click on the Events Calendar to see what is going on during your visit.Last updated: September 10, 2014
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.
