Meandering through 150 miles of Otter Tail County, the Otter Trail is a delightful drive. The trail guides travelers over rolling hills thick with maple, oak, and birch trees, past shimmering lakes and ponds sprinkled with white and yellow water lilies, and through fascinating towns alive with culture, history and fun things to see and do. This byway provides treats to delight all the senses!
Highway signs sporting a frisky otter clearly mark the circuitous route, and with the help of an Otter Tail County map available at any regional Minnesota Information Center, the journey makes a terrific day-trip. Travel through Fergus Falls, Battle Lake, Perham and Pelican Rapids in the most beautiful lake country Minnesota has to offer.
