Where to go: Color change within the park is nearly done, with most of the trees past their peak color. There is still some good color along the High Falls Trail and the first half of the Middle Falls Trail, but along the second half of the Middle Falls Trail most of the leaves have fallen. The best color will now be outside of the park along the shoreline of Lake Superior.
What you'll see: Color is fading quickly as the leaves continue to fall throughout the park. The leaf strewn paved trail is beautiful to walk this time of the year.Last updated: October 16, 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.
