Women Invited to Hike Maah Daah Hey Trail
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has openings for Hike the Maah Daah Hey Trail, a Becoming an Outdoors-Woman event scheduled for July 15-16.
This workshop is designed for women with previous hiking or backpacking skills, or who are in good physical condition. Participants will hike a 13-mile portion of the trail near the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Activity is strenuous due to rough terrain. The $30 fee includes group gear and transportation to and from the CCC Campground. Each participant must provide their own personal gear and meals.
Women interested in attending the workshop must enroll online at the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov. More information is available by contacting Brian Schaffer at 701-328-6312, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
