Reiter Foothills State Forest

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Other Names

Reiter Pit, Austin Creek, Hogarty Creek, Deer Creek, Skykomish River, Deer Flats Mainline Road, Gold Bar Boulders

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Reiter Foothills State Forest curently offers 5.7 miles of single track motorcycle trails, 10.4 miles of ATV trails and 6.8 miles of 4x4 trails for modified trucks. Trail construction is continuous so mileage will keep increasing.

The ATV trails are mostly hard packed and are layered with loose gravel rock. The 4x4 trail has some large rocks, tree stumps, and some narrow and offcamber turns. Riders should note that the trails are marked and labled, so make sure you are on the right trail for your vehicle type (no ATV or dirt bike use on 4x4 trails).

The trails are open daily, year-round but hours are seasonal. Currently camping is not permitted but a new staging area is in the works which will be open 24 hours. A Discover Pass is required, so pick one up before heading out.

The DNR recently installed new vault bathrooms in the lower parking lot and the other off Deer Flats Mainline in the ATV and single track area. Be sure to say thanks for all their hard work.
