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.

Raining, wet, slick as HE double tooth picks. Wear pads top and bottom, at speed definitely need some type of eye protection. The slick trails made for but pucker fun.

Best ride of the season. Great trail conditions. It you're riding up to come down Greenland, don't. Greenland is closed for logging and there are trees across the trail
