Staff at Minnesota's 75 state parks submit fall color progress reports every week so you can plan your trips to the most scenic settings.

Explore Minnesota says the wave of peak fall colors typically starts in the northern part of the state in mid-September and makes its way south to the Iowa border by mid-October.

Sunny days and chilly nights create the best conditions for brilliant colors.
