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

Trail is in good shape for winter riding. A lot of work was done after logging this year by FOCF and trailworkers to recover from logging and maintain this trail. Cleared 2 trees down below Thurston Creek. Did a little raking and cleaning on the recently logged section that trailworkers just reopened.

Lots of drainage issues on the way up. A mixture of wet weather and ORV traffic mean that the bottom is quite soupy and slick with trail-wide puddles in between. At least three spots where there's a single trench down the center of the of the trail from moto use in the wet.
