Gear List for Bikepacking the Western Wildlands Route

The Western Wildlands Route (WWR) is a cross country route stretching from the Mexican / Arizona border over 2700 miles north to the Montana / Canadian border. The WWR is 80% unpaved consisting of mostly dirt roads and 4×4 tracks and passes through 4 states on the way – Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. The route can be traversed either direction, but since we started in late April, we took off from the Mexican border and headed north. Check out more details about the Western Wildlands Route on
