Fergus Falls is a pit stop for the Otter Trail Scenic Byway, a 150-mile loop through beautiful country and rich tradition. The trail takes you through 1,000 lakes and wildlife-filled wetlands and to a historic flour mill and other cultural stops. This byway was created to display the cultural, historical and natural significance of Otter Tail County.
The Otter Trail Scenic Byway is just one of Minnesota's 20 byways and includes 23 sites, many with interpretive signs, trails, picnic facilities and opportunities to view wildlife.
By tour bus or car, you can travel 150 miles of county and state roadways and see some of Minnesota's finest sights. Start anywhere on the byway—it’s a loop! You’ll travel through Fergus Falls, Battle Lake, Perham and Pelican Rapids. All you have to do is follow the "Otter Trail" highway signs.
