During late September, the 879,000 acres of the Hiawatha National Forest begin radiating the colors of crimson, yellow, gold, green and brown. At this time of year the woods, water, flora and fauna are richly picturesque. Campgrounds are in their grandeur and are not crowded. Fishing for salmon and trout is excellent. The Hiawatha has over 30 varieties of trees which provide a rainbow of colors.
Use the Hiawatha National Forest as a starting point for following the spectacular colors of fall, as they blaze their way south. Remember that the roads through a forest may be gravel or dirt and may be single or double lane. Please drive carefully.
