Larch Mountain West to Upper Twin Peaks trail is a roughly 12-mile route from Porter Campground to the flanks of Capitol Peak. This is a moto/mixed use trail, but it sees much less moto use than other moto trails in the Forest. Quad use is rare, and the trail has narrowed down to 100% singletrack. Done as a climb, it's a long but fairly gentle grade climb. Going down from the Peak towards Porter Camp is classic Capitol Forest moto trail... rowdy in spots, smooth and fast in others. Combined with the Crestline and Porter trails, this route is the definitive 30+ mile big loop on the north end of the Forest.
