Backus to Longville on 84 is a fun weave through the lakes

The Road

Starting in Backus, take Minnesota Scenic Byway Highway 84 east and northeast toward Longville.

The Ride

There’s a sign on 84 that says “weaving road next 4 miles” and that’s a good description of the road. It weaves through the woods and past the lakes and is surprisingly fun. Interspersed in the weaving stretches are long straightaways and small hills. The scenery is columns of trees and peeks at lakes throughout the 22 mile ride.

The Bottom Line

There are several good roads in the central lakes area and this is one of the best. You could continue past Longville and do the Woman Lake Loop all in one shot.
