Where to go: Hike the boardwalk! The bog vegetation remains very lush while sphagnum mosses are showing hints of orange and red.

What you'll see: Pitcher plants along the boardwalk are turning bright red. Sundew are still healthy and will survive until the first frost. Warblers are beginning their migration down through the bog.

Also of interest: Climb the fire tower for a great view of Upper Red Lake and it's forested shoreline. Fall colors are starting to show!

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.
