The route intersects U.S. Highway 59 in Waubun.

The route passes through Clearwater County briefly twice in southern La Prairie Township.

The route passes through the White Earth State Forest in southeast Mahnomen County and northeast Becker County.

The western terminus of Highway 113 is located in the Red River Valley region of Minnesota.

The eastern terminus of the route is located immediately south of Lake Itasca.
