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.

 This was my first trail ride, the roots section was a thing but overall super enjoyed it and look forward to exploring more of my backyard trail system.
