Six-state 'Heart of the West Adventure Route' is even better for 2023 wildland travel

Heart of the West Adventure Route maintains its "always something new" reputation for 2023: a "Plan B" network of Rocky Mountains routes in case weather or wildfires force a change of plans.

Have a look ...

Two-track segments now replace stretches of paved two-lane state highway and maintained county road. They are ideal for experienced adventure-motorcycle travelers and SUV-borne overlanders.

Since the new segments are more rudimentary and perhaps more challenging, the easy segments from the previous edition of H.o.W. remain on the optional ($60, shipped) folded-paper map of the route, published with Benchmark Maps.

H.o.W. retains its convenient web of interconnected loops, including connectors to the Backcountry Discovery Routes. Our convenient looping approach makes it easy to tailor a trip to your circumstances and interests, and to start and end your wildland odyssey without backtracking.

To address the challenges posed by weather and wildfires, which can render dirt roads impassable and wildlands inaccessible, in 2023 we will offer licensed H.o.W. clients a complimentary alternative to terminating their trip.

This alternative, not far from H.o.W., focuses on Idaho, one of the six states included in the H.o.W. network ...

Here, vast expanses of accessible and spectacular public lands await, on roads that are less subject to impact from the moods of Mother Nature.

As always, campsites, lodgings and fuel sources are waypointed.

So don't delay! Contact us soon using the convenient template to the right.

We've done the work, so you can live the dream.
