Mountain Bike the Maah Daah Hey

International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) has designated the Maah Daah Hey Trail as EPIC, meaning it’s one of the top mountain biking trails in the United States.

More About the Maah Daah Hey

The Maah Daah Hey Trail is a 144-mile non-motorized single track through the Badlands of North Dakota. It is at times rugged, challenging, relaxing, and always amazing.  It has nine fenced campgrounds, each accessible by gravel surfaced roads and includes camping spurs, potable water, hitching rails, picnic tables, fire rings, and accessible toilets. They are spaced about every 20 miles along the trail. 

Maps are available from the Forest Service in Watford City just 16 miles north of the trail head. 

* The trail is open year-round but it is best to check the weather before heading out.
