April 1 Update: The single-track motorcyle trail is snow-free and open for the April 6 test ride!

Load up your 4×4 dream machine and head out to the newly constructed 4×4 challenge course at Reiter Foothills Forest. The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had the first test ride on November 17.

Do you prefer single-track motorcycle trails?

Single-track motorcycle trails will be available for test rides as well. Two miles of the Red Line and Blue Line trails will be open during these test rides. Check out Riders Leave First Track at Reiter Foothills for more information on the single-track trails.

Our ATV trails are not yet ready, but we will let you know when you can bring those along to the test rides.

Please note: Reiter will only be open for limited test rides on the dates listed below.

The nitty GRITTY

Mark your calendars; here are the dates of the test rides in the 4×4 and single-track areas:

Test rides will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is limited parking and riders may be turned away until parking opens up.

Be sure to print your maps before you go:

 Your voice counts!

All riders will have an opportunity to complete a survey that will help the trail development team know how to make the trails even better!

From Gold Bar, head east on State Highway 2. Turn left on Reiter Road just outside of Gold Bar. Go 1 mile and stay to the right at the ‘Y’ in the road. Continue on Reiter Road for another 3.1 miles. As you approach the 3.2 mile mark you will be turning left onto a DNR forest road (commonly known as Deer Flats Road). As you approach the turn, there will be a tree with two bright orange painted dots, an arrow painted on the road with a big “R,” and a DNR sign that says “Entering Reiter Foothills Forest.”

Now for the fun part

Don’t forget your Discover Pass, your ticket to millions of acres of recreation opportunities on Washington state-managed recreation lands. The Discover Pass is now transferable between two vehicles.
