The prairies, filled with big bluestem and Indian grass, are at their prime and very gold and maroon. The ash trees remain a striking bronze. The woodland vines and maple trees are adding splashes of red, orange and yellow to the landscape. The red oaks are beginning to turn various shades of red. Many of the early-turning ash, basswood, hackberry and understory trees have shed their yellow leaves. Hike the Mount Tom Trail then climb to the Mount Tom Lookout for a panoramic view of Sibley and beyond. Kayaks and canoes are available to rent most weekends — experience a unique view of the park from Lake Andrew.
