Where to go: The six mile, roundtrip, hike to Carlton Peak will reward you with broad vistas of the surrounding forest, including the fiery maples which are just getting serious about turning color.

What you'll see:

The maples, and other leaves, are definitely making their way to color, with the peak being, perhaps, a week away.

The wet summer has kept our North Shore streams flowing well throughout the season, so the waters of the Temperance River are still higher than is usual. the higher water is making it harder to observe the pink salmon that should be spawning, right now.

Also of interest: Pink Salmon, also called Humpies, should be spawning any time now. Look for schools of spawning fish in shallow pools, especially early in the morning and later in the evening. They spawn and die after only two years and do not reach sizes much over a pound.

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.
