Where to go: Once you arrive at Sibley, go straight to the Interpretive Center for orientation to roads and trails. You will also see some great exhibits and find out about upcoming naturalist programs. From there, the best place to see color is from the top of Mt. Tom, the highest point at Sibley.
What you'll see: We are past our peak color for the year. There are still some very nice pockets of color throughout the park and surrounding area. You can expect to see color in some tree types, such as red oak and aspens, through early November.
Also of interest: A trip to Sibley brings you near several other MN State Parks, such as Monson Lake, Glacial Lakes and Lake Carlos. You will pass through or near these awesome places by traveling on the Glacial Ridge Scenic Byway. It is a great way to view the annual color change and see some new sights!Last updated: October 31, 2013
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.
