Went up there (Reiter) on Sunday. Followed a stock Fj that slipped on an up hill trail/road. He slid backwards and came to rest on his gas tank skid plate on one of two really big rocks. The other rock was destined to take out his rear pumpkin if he slid another inch or two...

Pulling him out would have resulted in serious damage to his undercarriage and/or rear dif/axel so I figured I'd go around him and pull him free. However, I too slipped while trying to get around him. Came to rest with the drivers rear on a large hump, the pasenger side on the downhill and my drivers front about 3' in the air. The Fj guys came running down and held on to my front bumper to keep us from rolling...After about five minutes of butt puckering I was able to free myself from the situation and began to conjure up a plan "B"...

Ended up rigging my snatch block to a tree about 30' in front of the Fj. My Jeep was about 20' behind his Fj. I was able to free him and pull him forward enough that he could navigate around the two large rocks behind him. I left the winch/cable & rigging connected so we could control his decent. It worked, and, outside of a winch cable scratch on his rear quater panel and a customized (by the rocks) gas tank skid plate he was able to drive off the mountain safe & sound.

All in all, in my opinion Reiter wasn't as much fun as Evans Creek. Shoot, Tahuya was better, too. Maybe I/we didn't get to the right areas of Reiter. Maybe next time...

And to all those that don't have a winch or recovery gear I would encourage you to do so before you expose others to the danger of injury or damaging their rig & equipment to get your sorry butt out...

Reiter has some easy stuff but it also has some really hard stuff. Not all that much in between.

For a map go to my website and download it here.

Spent about 80 hours GPS mapping and designing the map. Print it out doubled sided at a Kinkos or Office Depot for ~$2 and another ~$2 to get it laminated for durability.

The only thing is the Lake Isabel Trail is closed on the other side of May Creek by the WA State DNR as well as the Index Wall Trail on the other side of Deer Creek.

Yes, there are plenty of trails left to explore.

There is the rock garden (think rock crawling on slimy, mud and moss covered boulders the size of cars set in the forest). And the Rhinoland trail is really challenging. Plus lots of cool segments to check out, rock wall climbs, hill climbs, the three-step obstacle . . . lots of stuff.

It's worth it still to go up.
