Reiter Foothills was for many years an unmanaged, unofficial riding area with no rules and no maintenance. It was shut down for several years, but has been re-opened. Currently there are only a few miles of trails, but it is steadily growing back into an ORV area of respectable size, with more trail miles added each year.

Trails are being separated out into single-track, ATV, and 4×4. The new trails are very heavily influenced by volunteer participation, and since there are few if any UTV/SxS riders getting involved, the result is that there is not much at Reiter that is suitable for UTVs. That being said, if you’ve configured your UTV as a rock crawler with very large tires, clutching optimized for low speed and thick skid plates, then Reiter Foothills might be great for you! However, if your preferred style of UTV riding is more geared toward high speed and long distances, you won’t find what you are looking for at Reiter.

The ATV trails are not accessible to most UTVs; There is a 50” gate filtering the single road that leads to them. Even if you fit through the gate in your UTV, your longer wheel base will not allow sharp enough turns to stay on the trails.
