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.

This is the upper porter trail down hill part to the clear cut. I would consider this the best trail in the Capitol forest. It's a cruzier

Tree was cleared since my last time thru. Rain has soaked in and washed dust off the trail. The trail cleaning for the races has all the brush back off the lines. Good riding

Rode April 30th top to bottom. The upper section from trail start through the first set of switchbacks is open-ish. Once you get below the switchbacks, you’ll need to follow the directions below, bail out onto C-4010 and pick the trail back up after it crosses the road. After that, everything is running great. Some muddy/tacky patches if you’re in the deep woods. Everything with even a touch of sun exposure is nice and dry.

About 5-7 big trees have been uprooted between the trailhead near Greenline and the first intersection with C Line road. You can walk around all of them but it makes it very difficult to get in a groove in this section. After that the C Line Road, the trail has patches of wet loam or mud.
