Otter Tail Scenic Byway 78
Distance: 25 miles
Time: 29 minutes
Otter Tail Scenic Byway 78 is a nice addition to a day of riding the Minnesota Central Lakes
Take Ottertail Scenic Byway, Highway 78 between Perham and Battle Lake.
I rode from Perham south to Battle Lake. The traffic was a bit heavier in the mid-afternoon on the northern end of this 25-mile run. The traffic died down as the road curved around Ottertail Lake. There’s nothing extraordinary about the curves. The roads are in great shape and it’s wooded, secluded scenery alongside a few lakes. It’s a calm ride and a good addition to a day of riding the lakes.
The Bottom Line
If you’re planning a day of riding the Central Minnesota Lakes, it’s not a bad option to add to your day.
