For off-road wheelers, Reiter Foothills is a place to experience the camaraderie the park is known for.
The 10,000 acre Reiter Foothills Forest is a continuous block of forest land located between Gold Bar and Index providing 4 miles of single-track trail, 2 miles of all-terrain vehicle (ATV) trail, and over two miles of challenging 4 X 4 trails with a high density of obstacles. These trails set a new standard for sustainable built ORV trails with quick and easy access to challenge areas, including a 9-acre bike trails area. Reiter Road is part of the Old Highway 2 system. Enjoy the scenic narrow lane as it twists and turns to match the contour of the mountains and river.
Open on weekends Memorial Day to Labor Day Friday 4pm to 7pm, Saturday & Sunday 9am to 7pm.
