Where to go: Right now the birches and aspens are beautiful! Walking along any trail in the park will give you a great opportunity to enjoy the season. Leaves are littering the trails and the falls are flowing.
What you'll see: Yellow leaves are everywhere! You'll find them still in the trees, carpeting the trails and flying down around you. The tamaracks are starting to change their yellow green as well. The forecast for the weekend is beautiful so hit the trail and the shore for the last breath of fall!

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.
