Default Reiter Foothills Update June 11, 2009

This week at Reiter Foothills

We are working hard to address the impacts of heavy ORV use in the area. Last weekend, DNR installed some water bars on the routes north of May Creek. The water bars are intended to direct the flow of water, reducing erosion and sediment impacts to streams.

Future Recreation at Reiter Foothills

The Reiter Foothills Recreation advisory committee has completed its work. DNR is now beginning work on internal review and development of a draft recreation plan for the area. We hope to have that plan ready for public input and SEPA review later this summer. Thanks to the volunteer committee members for all of their hard work.


There is an active timber sale in the area—up the Deer Creek Mainline Road. Be sure to drive cautiously and be aware of log trucks, equipment, and road work in the area.

Over the years, many users built their own trails without permission. Many of these user-built trails are in areas that are environmentally sensitive or not appropriate for a number of reasons. New, unauthorized user-built trails continue to appear as users find new routes in the woods. DNR staff has begun posting signs at many of these locations, indicating which trails are not to be used. Please protect the health of the ecosystem at Reiter, and obey these signs. And please do not establish any new trails.

Thank you for your help in helping us keep Reiter safe and protected.
