The Maah Daah Hey Trail is a world-renowned 97-mile trail that weaves through the north and south units of Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Little Missouri National Grasslands. The name originated with the Mandan Tribes and translates to “land that will be around for a long time.”
This trail system features nearly every type of terrain found in western North Dakota. This varies from grassy flats and ridges to very rough, steep clay badlands buttes with everything in between, including river bottoms and wooded draws to rolling prairie.
The north end of the trail is located just across the Little Missouri River from the entrance of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
