Where to go: The best spots to view the color changes are from the back of the visitor center, the pit overlooks, and along the hiking club trail. The entrance road and the road to Stuntz Bay are also good spots to see the colors.

What you'll see: We have plenty of birch and aspen along with a view shed of tamaracks. The maple trees are a beautiful red right now.

Also of interest: Join us for our underground mine tours and physics lab tours. Call the park for tour times and costs -- 218-753-2245.

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.
