Biking – Glendalough Trail

Paved 12 mile loop of outstanding views of lakes, prairies and forests. Battle Lake is an excellent starting point.

Fun at the Lake

The Battle Lake area is defined by bountiful natural resources. A myriad of lakes, streams, rivers, and wetlands compose a predominant portion of our region. Enjoy the water, the sun and endless aquatic adventures.

Glendalough State Park

Glendalough, our conservation icon, covers more than 2,000 acres amid a wealth of geological features, expansive wetlands, several lakes, grasslands, and abundant wildlife. A unique attribute is Glendalough’s proximity to the city of Battle Lake. It’s simply a bike ride away.

Snack & Dine Along the Trail

If you enjoy outdoor dining, great steaks, seafood, casual and home style cooking, there’s something for every taste in Battle Lake.


Two of the finest 18-hole golf courses in the state of Minnesota – Balmoral and Thumper Pond – reside in the heart of our area. Golf enthusiasts will be respectfully challenged by the winding creeks, wetlands, rolling hills and abundant forestry on both of these courses.
