DNR opens Reiter Foothills Reservation Line

Members from local motorcycle organizations came out Wednesday night, August 1, to test drive the first loop of constructed trail at Reiter Foothills.

DNR, riders, and volunteers were excited to begin breaking in the trail.

Also on Wednesday, DNR passed out a survey to find what riders would like to see developed on the remaining sections of trail.

The 1.4 miles of dynamic, challenging single-track motorcycle trail was started in mid-June and completed by the August 1 goal date. The hard work of Washington Conservation Corp crew members, volunteers, and DNR staff culminated in a celebration of the new trail.

After testing the new trail, riders had an opportunity to share their experience with DNR and give their feedback. Riders concluded that the new trail was fun, and each rider had great suggestions for improvement. This information will help guide the trail planners and construction crew as the rest of the trail system is developed.

For all you excited stump jumpin’, dirt lovin’, berm ridin’ motorcyclists out there, your chance to ride the trail has come!

Reserve your space now before it fills up! Reservation line closed.
