Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark toured the Reiter Foothills trail construction yesterday, June 26. The rainy weather certainly didn’t put a damper on the upbeat spirit of the event. Commissioner Goldmark toured the various stages of trail development and visited with volunteers and the Washington Conservation Corps crews who were working on the trail.
Breaking ground on new trails is always exciting, but at Reiter Foothills, there is even more to celebrate. DNR has been working with the Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) community since 2009 to plan, design, and construct a sustainable trail system that provides world class recreational opportunities across forested state trust lands while protecting streams, native ecosystems, and the environment.
DNR staff, Washington Conservation Corps crews, and volunteers have made tremendous progress in building the Red Line C Loop trail (see map below) and are looking forward to having it completed by August. Check out volunteer opportunities on July 7 and July 29 where you will have the opportunity to put the finishing touches on the trail including rocks, logs, and other obstacles.
We’ll see you there!
