Where to go: Watch the fall color change this year, from a beautiful overlook of the Mississippi River Valley. Riverview Trail has 592 steps leading to the vista.

What you'll see: Sumacs are stunning. Maples and oaks are turning quickly in the last few days. Color peak will probably occur within the next 10 days.

Also of interest: Enjoy views of the Mississippi River, and watch bald eagles soar above the river. Check out naturalist programs at nearby Whitewater State Park on Saturdays and Sundays in September.

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.
