Glendalough State Park
By Jim Umhoefer
Prior to becoming a state park in the mid-1990s, this nearly 2,800-acre mix of elm and basswood forests, fields, hills and unspoiled lakes had been managed as a natural wildlife preserve and land stewardship continues to be a hallmark of Glendalough State Park. Glendalough State Park is located about 4 miles north of Battle Lake just off the Otter Trail Scenic Byway in Minnesota’s Otter Tail County.
Cross-country skiers have access to eight miles of groomed trails at Glendalough State Park. Snowshoeing is allowed throughout the park except on groomed ski trails. Park visitors can warm up in the visitor center or the lodge building.
