Classic Capitol Forest longish loop. Wedekind trail from Fall Creek TH up to Porter. Upper Porter Trail to C-Line road. C-Line road to Crestline. Crestline to GL6. GL6 all the way down. Loop is close to 30 miles, but well worth the effort. This was the CF Classic XC course in 2015 and may well be again someday soon.

Top of the trail still has some snow pack, multiple branches on path. Rideable but it will be muddy in spots and you may want to take the access road to avoid snow.
