There's only one state park left with peak fall colors

You'll have to head to Winona to see it.

The peak fall colors have all but disappeared in Minnesota, with the exception being one tiny corner in the southeast of the state.

According to the Minnesota DNR's fall color tracker, trees in the vast majority of Minnesota have passed their peak.

There's just one area left that has 75-100 percent peak colors, and that's the area just northwest of Winona.

That means there's only one state park in the state with peak colors left, John A. Latsch State Park, which overlooks the Mississippi River.

The park is off of Highway 61, and is an almost two-hour drive from Minneapolis – 1:45 hours from St. Paul – meaning die-hard fall color fans will have to undertake quite a trek to catch that last glimpse of fall.

Weather conditions for a hike this weekend aren't too bad – it'll be in the low 50s in Winona, but it's likely to be cloudy on Saturday. You'll have a better chance of seeing some sun on Sunday.
