The Maah Daah Hey Trail accommodates hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders on a scenic route through North Dakota's Badlands and some of the state's most pristine wilderness. The name derives from the Mandan Indians and means "grandfather" or "be here long," a prescient name for the 96-mile-long trail.
The trail extends between Sully Creek State Park south of Medora, following the Little Missouri River, and the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Experienced mountain bikers will love the more challenging sections, while beginners are better off sticking to the more gentle segments. Whatever your level, follow the trail markers with the distinctive turtle insigniaa Mandan totem. The trail passes by Theodore Roosevelt's Elkhorn Ranch site on the Little Missouri River as well as General Sully's Trail and the CCC Historical Site.
