The Summit trail connects Summit campground west to the Maah Daah Hey at MP 94. This trail traverses the biggest, steepest badlands in the Little Missouri National Grasslands. A large slump about 3 miles west of Summit campground is difficult to traverse. The largest Juniper tree in North Dakota is about a half mile east of the Maah Daah Hey on the Summit trail. This is a good in-and-out day hike with spectacular views of the Badlands.
