      The Badlands are located in Yarmouth Port just north of Route 6. They consist of a vast network of trails on both private and public lands. They go on for miles. The Badlands’ trails actually connect to trails leading all the way back to Maple Swamp at exit 4. That’s about 30 miles. (But we’ll save that ride for another day.)

      The riding at the Badlands ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous. Many of the singletracks are smooth and flowy, completely lacking in rocks or roots as the glide up, down and around some very gentile hills.
