This challenge starts in a town graced with wonderful Victorian architecture, surrounded by scenic lakes and a river that cascades through its center. Fergus Falls, the county seat of Otter Tail, is an impressive town on the north side of the Continental Divide and a great place to start this ride. The route takes you on a tour that meanders over the rolling countryside on the Otter Tail Scenic Byway, crossing the Pomme De Terre River, to the village of Dalton. It then loops around to the north shore of Lake Christine. Here you will notice the Seven Sisters, a series of hills that stretch for 20 miles. After arriving in Evansville, you have two choices for your return trip, the road or the trail. Running parallel with each other through Ashby and Dalton, each returns its separate way to a town with 3 miles of rapids cascading through it.
