Long loop out of the Porter Camp area. Deep woods, great views at the peak Park at the bottom of Porter Trail (intersection of B-Line and C-1000). Ride B-Line through Porter Camp then go right when it turns into B-1000. About a mile up B-1000, you'll see an almost hidden entrance to Larch Mountain West on the left. Take Larch Mountain West up another 8 miles until it hits Twin Peaks Trail. Take Twin Peaks to to C-4000 road (ride up to Capitol Peak while you're at it) and hop on Crestline all the way down to Wedekind. At Wedekind, take Porter all the way back to the start. 3-6 hours, depending on your conditioning.

Route is rideable all year, but best in the late summer/early fall.

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.
