North Dakota Bike Trails

Summer is here and it’s time to hit the trails, wouldn’t you agree? But also in winter, North Dakota is a great place for skiing and enjoying the great outdoors! North Dakota bike trails cut through the Midwestern region of the United States. From the northern portion of the Badlands to the Missouri River, the state consists of hilly Great Plains.

The state also has man-made lakes, trees (usually in central North Dakota), and wetlands. Browse through the trails below to find more information about bike trails in North Dakota. And of course, enjoy your ride.

You should also be aware of the bicycle shops and bike dealers where you travel just in case you need to pick up some new gear. For a list of North Dakota bike shops and dealers, please visit the North Dakota Bike Shops page on US Bike Trails.
