'Off The Map' Video: Maah Daah Hey Trail

Episode No. 3 in our Off The Map video series, “Maah Daah Hey Trail,” takes viewers to the unlikely adventure destination of western North Dakota. It is there that an old horse track winds a vague and dusty 96 miles between two units of a national park and through the state’s Martian-like Badlands region.



Cameraman T.C. Worley shot the film, and Joshua Van Patter was editor. Thanks to the YogaSlackers crew (Jason, Chelsey, and Daniel), who helped organize and lead the trip. Riders Andrei Karpov and Parker Roenfanz endured the trail and helped haul gear + find crucial water stops along the way!

All in all, another epic mini adventure trip. We encourage you to visit the Maah Daah Hey. You’re guaranteed to have the place almost to yourself. We saw no one out there. Just don’t get lost. It’s a little-traveled route that needs a few more tire tracks to help smooth it down!

Thank you. I always like to see videos that show mountain biking is more than just big drops on epic downhills.

That was awesome! Man I’d love to ride that trail although 96 miles in 2 days aint easy on a MTB. Lovin this off the map series, awesome stuff!

Awesome guys!! For those who want to ride it in 4 days-Take our “Works” Shuttle, we’ll haul your gear, ice in the coolers, clean drinking water, etc…! Support for break downs! Make it a vacation!

This is a wonderful trail with nice camp areas about every 20 miles. Lots of climbs, drops, river crossings (perhaps a swim if the water is high) and Dakota Cyclery in Medora is a nice place to get advice and support if you need a shuttle. Just be aware of your water, NO cell service and self sufficient, cause you’re out there alone. Get a park map too.
