    Has anyone been hiking in North Dakota and are North Dakota hiking trails in the state parks worth checking out? the reason I ask is because we're serious hikers and like to cover long distances.

    hi there,

    The North Dakota hiking trails found at the state parks are best suited for day hikes, but if you prefer covering a lot of distance, you can always check out the 96-mile Maah Daah Hey Trail that passes through the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

    The Maah Daah Hey Trail features four different campsites, so you can also stop along the way to set up camp. These campsites are fenced and feature amenities like campfire rings and vault toilets.

    The North Country National Scenic Trail is another extended North Dakota hiking trail worth considering if you are interested in extended hikes. This long trail follows the shore of Lake Sakakawea near Williston and extends toward the Sheyenne State Forest in the southeastern part of the state.
