Minnesota State Parks and Trails will keep you current with Minnesota’s fall colors!

fall leaf (Small)Minnesota’s wet early summer should produce a colorful fall leaf display, but experts warn that it could come and go faster than usual. Patricia Arndt of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ Park and Trails Division, says the fall color display will move across the state quickly. If you enjoy viewing the color or walking the trails at any of our state parks – don’t miss the wonderful fall scenery.

Colors typically peak mid-September to early October in the northern third of Minnesota, late September to early October in the central third and late September to mid-October in the southern third. Peak fall color typically lasts about two weeks, but that can vary widely, depending on location, elevation and weather.

The DNR has an online fall color finder map (http://www.mndnr.gov/fallcolor) that can help you find the best shows. The site is updated each Thursday with the latest fall color information.

To get into state parks and recreation areas, a $5 day permit is needed, or an annual $25 permit is accepted.
