This is the poker ride route from the Capitol Forest Classic (also the beginner route for the XC race). Great short loop out of the Fall Creek trailhead. Climb up Wedekind trail (formerly Mima-Porter Cool up to Wedekind Tie (formerly Trail 50). Take the Tie over to Greenline 6 trail then head back down to the trailhead. The DH is classic Capitol Forest. Rooty, slick, fast, and fun. Enjoy "Roots of Fury" and "The Luge" on your way down. Great winter night ride.

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.
