Depends on your definition of "open".

This coming Saturday and again on December 2, DNR is hosting an "open house" to ride the "Red Line" trail (1.4 miles), and the Blue Line Trail (0.6 miles). First come first served, parking limited. For me that would be about a two hour drive, round trip, 20 minutes bs'ing in the parking lot and a generous 15 minutes per lap, probably bored after two laps.

I think I have some chores to do on Saturday, or at least I hope so.

I'd gladly share the newsletter that comes to me via email.

Trick your rig and get ready for a 4×4 adventure at Reiter Foothills!
Get your 4×4 ready to go! This weekend there is a test run at Reiter Foothills! Photo: Sue Jensen, DNR.
Load up your 4×4 dream machine and head out to the newly constructed 4×4 challenge course at Reiter Foothills Forest. This course will be open for test rides starting this weekend 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 Tracks at Reiter Foothills for more information on the single-track trails.

The ATV trails are not 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:
•November 17
•December 2
•January 12 & 20
•February 9 & 17

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:
•4x4 challenge trails
•Single-track map - The Blue Line and Red Line are completed and ready to 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!

Directions

DNR has 2 miles of single-single track motorcycle trail ready for you to test this weekend . Photo: Jessica Payne, DNR.

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.

What the fcuk is a test ride? Isn't that what you do in the parking lot before you go riding? Are hikers going to rally and take all the parking spots so no one else can play, or will their numbers be limited as well? I really want to ride my new bike, Walker t'morra anyone?

My usual group has cancelled on me for tomorrow. You come O'er here and we go riding. Walker is further away from me than Cle Elum, I swear.

As I recall there were miles of trails already. what did they build

Well, I drove Highway 2 today on my way up to Stevens, there is actually snow at around 700 feet but it is melting off very quickly in the rain. David Way told me that the trails would be closed "if" there was snow, I will call on Friday to find out if there could be a last-minute update. I'd like to see what this "single track" looks like. Since I have never been to the original trails, I won't know what I'm missing anyway. I'm sure it won't be anything like those two Reiter videos (sweet by the way!), but I'd like to see what erosion-free, environmentally sustainable and soil-conscious dirt bike trails look like.

By the way I will be running with my new hemp oil chain lube.

Just watching those short videos makes me wish I could find a time machine so I could go back in time and try to pull the DNR Commissioner's head out of his ass before they made their mind up that it needed "fixing"...

Oh my garsh! Funny to see trees growing there. I thought all the dirt bikers emaciated the place long ago and then DNR had to come in and save it?

What would we do without the DNR?
