Where to go: Chimney Rock Trail offers a fairly short hike to a beautiful overlook where you will get a great view of fall colors and the river. For those with accessibility challenges, take the Meadow Trail to get a view of the colors on the surrounding bluffs.

What you'll see: The fall colors changed rapidly between October 15 and 17. There are still some gorgeous colors throughout the park but hurry before the wind blows them all away!

Also of interest: Check out the park programs offered Saturdays and Sundays this month!

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.
