Bears Ears Loops

795 miles • Utah

Official Guide of Bikepacking Roots

Bears Ears Loops is a 795-mile bikepacking route network developed by Bikepacking Roots to immerse bikepackers in this immense, complex, magnificent, and threatened landscape. What are the Bears Ears? The Bears Ears are two adjacent buttes, together resembling a pair of bear ears, that rise from high on a plateau in southeastern Utah. Visible from many vantages for a hundred miles or more in most directions, these buttes have stood throughout human time and have deep cultural, historic, and political significance. The Bears Ears Loops, paired with Bikepacking Roots' 100-page guidebook, will help riders better understand this landscape beyond its aesthetics and solitude. And a better understanding of a place during powerful experiences creates advocates for places like this.
