Yo all, I notice he hasn't posted here...

Keep your eyes open. Most of you have wheeled with him before and know the man and the Jeep. Let's hope for a speedy recovery with minimal damage.

I don't know. I'm going to do some driving around this evening when I get home. Spanaway, edgewood, etc. I don't mind driving my Jeep around anyway, and helping out a friend is the least I can do..

Hey Geoff, since I know you're into Reiter a lot, and the rest should take note too...

All that area they are talking about includes the ORV park I was told..

Just a short drive for you! Evan's Creek ORV or a little further is Elbe Hills. Check out this thread. You'll see pics, links, all kinds of good info.

It is hard to tell from looking at the map in that article, but I think most of Reiter Trails is outside the proposed wilderness area. Most of the trails are down closer to highway 2. The Lake Isabel trail might cross over the boundary, but I would need to see a more detailed map to be sure. If the map is accurate, I'm about 90% sure that the Index Wall trail does not cross over the boundary.

From what I've heard the isabel trail will be closed from the log bridge up.

hey thanks for the info,

yeah i have heard that reiter is ok, but some trails will be designated for different types of vehicles like quads and dirt bikes, like most of the other trail networks around washington. The index wall trail is already closed at the rocks about an 1/8 mile from the top, but this is a small sacrifice for keeping such an awesome are open. Also the lake Isabel trail from what i understand like others have said may be cut off just after the log bridge.

thanks
Geoff

I am a PNW4WDA Region 1 delegate for my Jeep club and they keep us informed about what's happening at Reiter. Sounds like a lot has been happening:

1. The Snohomish county executive recently signed a zoning bill allowing ORV parks in the county. This clears the way for converting Reiter into an official ORV park someday.

2. State DNR has provided money for two signs at the two primary entrances to Reiter stating rules of conducts and designating the areas around the signs as official parking for the trails.

3. Snohomish County sheriff's dept has provided funding for a couple deputies to patrol Reiter. They have bought the officers some motorbikes for the patrols and given them off-road motorcycle training.

4. Local clubs in the area have been cataloging all the Jeep and motorbike trails and mapping them with GPS so they can be "officially recorded" by the DNR.

Looks like Reiter is heading toward becoming an ORV park at some point. Which I think is a good thing as it will give it some legitemate protection and legal stability. Currently it's a wild no-man's land where there's not a lot of law enforcement or patroling. As such the local ya-hoos use it as a dumping place and party central creating a bunch of problems for everyone. Once my club and I came across an un-attended burn pile and called the fire department. Their response was "yeah, we've been there".

Still, be prepared for the long-haul. The local clubs have been working to convert that area into an ORV park for a couple decades now. It may take almost that much longer seeing as everything moves at the speed of government.
