Where to go: Loon Lake Trail Lake Shumway Trail still have nice color, though the reds have faded...Wolf Lake Maples are very pretty...Continental Divide Trail is very nice. The leaves are thinning, but there is still nice color. Most of the small Maples and Ash leaves down...
What you'll see: Aspen Ridgetops are starting to change, as well as the Oaks...Silver Maple also changed. Starting to see some nice yellows, burgundies, oranges, rusts and golds. Oaks are deep red, orange, and yellow. Birch, Basswood and Hazel completely yellow and loosing their leaves. The underbrush has a nice golden glow...Nice contrast to the dark tree trunks.
Also of interest: Tumpeter 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: September 29, 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.
