The Turtle Mountains are a region of North Dakota. The Turtle Mountains are located along the border with Manitoba, in the central part of the state. It is one of only a few naturally forested places in the state, and provides ample opportunities for outdoor activities and just taking in the scenery. In Manitoba, the region is typically referred to as Turtle Mountain.
- From Minot, take US 83 to State Highway 5 near Westhope, go East to Dunseith, then turn North on US 281 towards the border. The scenery continues well past it but you'll want to stop at the Peace Garden for sure. Crossing the border, you'll be on Provincial Highway 10, which continues to Brandon and the Trans-Canada Highway. Notable places along the way: Bottineau; Dunseith and the International Peace Garden.
