Where to go: Final Report:Fall favorite sites to visit are hiking to the Hallaway Hill Overlook for outstanding vistas of clear blue lakes and the mix of hardwood forest and colorful prairies. The 4.5 mile scenic Park Drive winds through the heart of the park through a mix prairies, wooded knolls and shady hollows. Go for a hike on our 25 miles of hiking trails winding throughout the rolling lanscape of the park.

What you'll see: The ground is blanketed with leaves that have already fallen. It is a great time of the year to see the rolling landscape of Maplewood.

Also of interest: Birding is always a favorite with migrations just beginning. Trumpeter swans frequent local lakes and wetlands along with a variety of waterfowl.

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.
