Otter Tail Scenic Byway 78

Minnesota

There's nothing extraordinary about the curves. The roads are in great shape and it's wooded, secluded scenery alongside a few lakes.

Otter Tail Scenic Byway 78 is a nice addition to a day of riding the Minnesota Central Lakes

The Road

Take Ottertail Scenic Byway, Highway 78 between Perham and Battle Lake.

The Ride

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.
