The Pomme de Terre River scribes a narrow, wooded route through land that is heavily farmed. In a region of Minnesota that is devoted almost completely to agriculture, the Pomme de Terre provides a pleasant oasis. The stream runs past low bluffs and a mix of woods, pasture, and some farmland. Look for white-tailed deer, mink, songbirds, and water-loving birds such as kingfishers and great blue herons. Start your trip at the developed access at County Route 20. The river, screened by a fringe of woods, meanders across its floodplain.
