Where to go: FINAL REPORT! For a quiet fall experience, return hikers are exploring the lesser-used Gauthier Creek and Timberdoodle Trails. For those hikers new to the park, the Devil's Kettle Trail is still a must.

What you'll see: There are very few leaves left on the trees, but the understory still has red, orange, and yellow, especially along the rocky banks of Highway 61. The warm colors are mainly on the honeysuckle and red osier. One of the last to peak, the Tamarack needles are mostly a brilliant orange now.

Also of interest: Although the campground is closed for the season, Judge C. R. Magney State Park is open for day-use visitors.

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.
