Where to go: Some color will continue through the weekend, but the leaves are now falling fast and 50% of them are on the ground. Best bet for continued color is on the bike trail north of Annie Battle Lake.
What you'll see: Leaves are golden along the bike trail, but beginning to fall. Ducks are still migrating in large numbers on Sunset Lake. Deer and turkeys are easy to see.
Also of interest: No reservations needed for campsites this time of year. Water and showers are off in the campground, but year-round flush toilets and sinks are available at the trail center.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.
