I wrote to the DNR and here is their response for those that also might be interested in that area:
Thanks for checking in on the status of Reiter.
The short answer is, all of Reiter is still closed to all but foot traffic.
We have finished the T-1 and T-2 parking area and have started construction of Phase 1 single track trails in motorized section 6 and design is under way with Phase 1 section 1 trails, the 4x4 section, with construction anticipated to start late summer. Here’s a map showing the motorized side of Reiter:
As useable segments of trail forming loops are completed, we plan on having limited/monitored riding/driving opportunities occur until all of the Phase 1 trails are completed. Some limited opportunities should occur this fall. The completion date of the Phase 1 trails is largely dependent on weather and funding.
Here’s the “home page” for the Reiter Project with a link to subscribe to our monthly NW Newsletter which contains a Reiter Update section.

And, last but not least, access to state land now requires a Discover Pass. The Discover Pass funding replaces the State General Fund dollars that used to support recreation; information about the Discover Pass can be found here:
