where to wheel near Granite Falls (everett)

Okay, so i live in Granite Falls, WA and really getting into wheelin and it seems like just as i'm getting serious about it, all the spots around here are getting shut down because of people dying and people leaving their trash behind after parties.

Can anyone that knows the area tell me where there are good spots that are still accessible?

Never been to Reiter Pit but hear it's good, but i know it got shut down. is there any part of it still open?

Walker Valley is the nearest open legal area, up near Lake Cavanaugh/Big Lake.

Define "Nice"

Yes its pretty fun to wheel, especially if you are stock/mildly built. Its even funner in the snow.

As for Reiter, it is entirely shut down, will be for a few more years, hopefully...

"nice" was a bad word to use

Is it worth the it to take a trip there?

I guess i could just look it up on youtube and see for myself.

Yes, its worth a trip. If your built, it'll take ya half a day to run the trails, if your near stock, it'll take you the whole day to run most of the trails.

I looked it up on google maps and i think i'm only about 30 miles away so that's nothing at all.

I will definately check it out.

I will hopefully be ditching the blazer soon.

I could build it up but i don't like the way you have to chop them up so much to get your tires to clear.

I've been up there twice now, and I can't find much wheeling. The gates are closed each time I get there, leaving only gravel roads (3 miles or so). I rode a dirt bike around up there once so I got to see a bunch of narrow trails, but not much for trucks. Does Walker Valley have open trails I'm not seeing?

Yes, there is 4.5 miles of 4x4 trails (not logging roads)
Here is a link to the map.

I saw the trail up past the rock pit. I didn't realize it went back so far. Thanks.
