Love the scenery!

I rode only the beginning of this trail through the rolling meadows and cowpies. It was spectacular! Consider it a challenging full trail ride, one of the tops in the world.

We came back again to ride the Maah Daah Hey. This time, we road sections of the MDH near Magpie Campground over 2 days mid June, 2015, including Devil's Pass. Truly a fun singletrack on a mountain bike. Some downhill sections we got to 20mph. After setting out on our 2nd day of riding, the weather turned and began to... More

We were excited to hike a while on this "nationally recognized trail," but went only half a mile or so from the Buffalo Gap campground before we found ourselves in waist-high grasses with no visible trail at all. As someone else commented, if this is a regularly hiked trail, it sure doesn't show it. We called it quits - which... More

The Maah Dah Hey is 140 miles of Badlands cowpath, single-track, double-track, and occasional bushwacking if you're not careful. Weather can be iffy, and downright dangerous if you're caught in the rain (the trail becomes muddy and unrideable). It's best ridden with a guide or an outfitter, with careful attention to the weather. That said, it's a dramatic, awe-inspiring landscape,... More

My husband and I drove nine hours with our bikes to ride on this trail. First, you have to find it (search hard, as there are NO trailhead markers). The brochure (trail map) shows the trail going through the Teddy Roosevelt wilderness area; however, no bikes are allowed on the section of the trail! We were told to use the... More

If you're like many U.S. travelers, you've not been to North Dakota. It is the least visited state of the 50. Ironically, it also has the best economy. My wife had been to all the contiguous 48 states except ND, so I wanted to take her there. We love outdoor activities and Mountain Biking and I had read about the... More

I wish we had more time but the short hike we did on the Maah Daah Hey Trail "wetted" our appetite some day to return and do a longer hike. You can also do mountain biking and horse back rides on this trail through this scenic area.

We helped surface many sections of this trail. They improve it every year. I would start at the north end if I were not going to be able to do the whole trail, it is much more scenic, but also a bit more challenging

and connects to the trails in the Teddy Roosevelt National Park south end. You cannot ride it all in a week and probably not in a month!! our group did 25 miles a day for a week and still had lots to explore when we come back. Stay at Sully Creek Campground, great sites with great corrals and the trailhead... More
