Reiter FootHills Closings

Greetings All.

New to WA and to the forum. I am looking to have some fun this weekend and curious if anyone has been using the areas in Reiter Foothills that are not marked closed on their map. The map is here:

It shows there are still quite a few place to go if this is to be believed. Anyone have any direct feedback about going here for some jeep fun?

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.

This link will help you find other ORV opportunities on state land around the state:

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:

Thanks again,

The DNR closed it in Nov. 09 for the "winter" and it hasn't been open since.
