Where to go: Walk the Sioux and Oak Trail along the southern fringes of the park and be sure to step into the Des Moines River overlook for a spectacular view of the valley.
What you'll see: Goldenrods and sunflowers are in full bloom along with some meadow and blazing star. Look closely and you may find wild onion blooms.
Also of interest: Wildlife is plentiful. Be on the look out for wild turkey broods as several hens have raised their poults in Kilen Woods this summer.Last updated: October 21, 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.
