The granola brand bolsters naked hiking communities with a system to review the country’s top nude hikes

There’s nothing quite as freeing as taking a naked hike through nature. Unfortunately, nude hiking is forbidden according to many state and local laws. Inconsistent regulations, coupled with cultural biases against nudity, make naked hiking extremely challenging to navigate, leaving this niche community somewhat lost in the woods. 

But Bear Naked Granola believes people should be able to enjoy nature in whatever way they please, even if that’s bare naked. That’s why this National Nude Day, Bear Naked Granola is fueling a freehiking mission to help naked hikers navigate au naturel and allow people to get as close to nature as they please. 


In partnership with Outside’s Gaia GPS app, the granola brand is encouraging nude hikers to review trails for nude-friendliness using a discrete emoji code system to evade those who oppose naked hiking. Nude-friendly trails are marked: 🐻 🍑 ✅. And non-friendly trails are marked: 🐻 🍑 ❌. Hikers who take up this #HikeBearNaked challenge are looking out for things like crowds, regulations, shade, poison oak, bugs, etc. to make their official determinations. Together, these trails make up America’s first (un)official nude-friendly trail system. 

In addition to reviewing and mapping trails, Bear Naked is also coming to the aid of naked hikers with a tasteful new product innovation: The Bear Naked Belt. This newly engineered snacking gear is designed to help nude hikers avoid hunger and citations on the trails; they’re available to order here.

While most granola brands allow people to get out and enjoy nature, Bear Naked is truly taking things a step further by galvanizing the niche naked-hiking community and helping people “get Bear Naked” this summer—in more ways than one.
