The Maah Daah Hey trail system showcases some of the US's most unique and breathtaking terrain.
Majestic plateaus, jagged peaks and valleys, large expanses of rolling prairie, and rivers intertwine to offer the adventurous outdoors enthusiast a taste of pure, unadulterated wilderness. Expect plenty of tough climbs up buttes, steep descents through valleys, and you’ll even cross paths with the Little Missouri River in two spots.
If you take on the entire trail, there are 11 campgrounds for when you need a rest.
If not, there are 16 trailheads with connecting access, so you can jump in and off wherever you want.
Just keep an eye out for wildlife when you’re in the saddle, such as antelope, bighorn sheep, and bison, especially once you cross into Theodore Roosevelt National Park territory.
