Western Wildlands Route

2657 miles • Arizona, Utah, Idaho & Montana

Official App of Bikepacking Roots

The Western Wildlands Route offers bikepackers a non-technical, expeditionary-scale riding experience through Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Montana that immerses one in the vast expanses of wild and public lands in the Intermountain West. Nearly 70% of the route is on public lands, and more than 80% is off-pavement, following primarily follows dirt roads and rough 4x4 tracks on which mountain bikes are most suitable. Riders will experience the remote mountains of western Montana and central Idaho, the desolate beauty of southern Idaho’s Snake River Plain, endless vistas from Utah’s high plateaus at 10,000 feet elevation, the canyon country of Navajo Nation and the Grand Canyon region, and the towering Sky Islands and low Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona.
