Big Muddy Badlands

Big Muddy Badlands

The Big Muddy Badlands are a series of badlands in southern Saskatchewan and northern Montana along Big Muddy Creek. They are found in the Big Muddy Valley a 55-km cleft (35 miles) long, 3.2-kilometre wide, and 160 metres (500 ft) deep valley of erosion and sandstone along Big Muddy Creek.

In the nineteenth and early twentieth century the Badlands formed the northern end of the Outlaw Trail, a series of trails and stopping areas utilized by outlaws in the American West spanning from Canada to Mexico. Outlaws such as Dutch Henry and his brother Coyote Pete, Sam Kelly and the Pigeon Toed Kid, among others, moved into the Big Muddy. The notorious Sundance Kid, of Butch Cassidy fame, also turned up in the area.

Today ranching and tourism are important in the sparsely populated area.
