Where to go: Hike the Mound Trail and walk through the five to six foot high Big Blue Stem and Indian Grass on both sides of the trail makes you feel like you are walking through a tunnel.

What you'll see: The big bluestem and indian grass are an orange/rust color and are at peak color for the season. The trees have just a hint of color. The asters surrvived the first frost of the season and can be found on the Upper Mound Trail.

Also of interest: The bison have been up in their front range and more visible to the public since we started feeding them grain to get them acclamated to coming into the corral.

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.
