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

      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.
