Where to go: Last Report...The Aspen ridgetops on the Continental Divide and Beaver Pond trails have hanged to a golden yellow. Most of the leaves are down on Loon Lake and Shumway Trails. Tamarack around Wolf Lake are a nice gold...
What you'll see: Looks and feels like late Fall...cool, crisp, frosty mornings...Leaves falling like gold coins from the bright blue skies...paving the the streets in gold...crunching underfoot...Tamarack turned to a lovely gold...a nice contrast to the dark green of the pines.
Also of interest: The Park with be mostly closed to day use on October 25th and 26th for a Youth Deer Hunt. Fishing is allowed, but no hiking or Geocaching on the park trails. Trumpeter Swans at Wolf Lake and Eagles have been around. Deer starting to move around, and there are a few ducks around. We also just installed our new fishing pier at Lake Shumway! Come and check it out!Last updated: October 20, 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.
