Where to go: Peak color was last week and at least half our leaves have fallen, but there is still plenty of fall in the air and in the landscape! Follow the trail down the river to the lakeshore to see the contrast between fall color on the land and the steel-gray lake.
What you'll see: Yellow leaves are falling, carpeting the trails and flying all around you. The tamaracks are changing to yellow, too. Bald eagles and other late season birds are still migrating through the area. Look up for raptors and down for sparrows scratching in the underbrush!

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.
