intersection, turn left onto C-Line gravel road. Continue a few miles up to
road C-6000 road on left. Follow until road ends at parking area.  

Route Description: Directly SE of the parking area is the entrance to Mima
Porter #8 trail, cross the stream and at the first intersection in about 100 yards
turn right onto Mima Porter #8, follow Mima Porter #8 around and up Lost
Valley to the first intersection, continue left on Trail #20, at the next
intersection turn left onto Green line #6 back to Fall Creek..   

Ride Summary: This part of Mima Porter #8 is remote and not very well
maintained. The soil is loamy and drains you of energy. The isolated and
very-deep-quiet-haunted-raw-forest feel is what makes this section intriguing.
Also know as "The Valley of Death". The descent down Greenline #6 is fast
with lots of tight corners thrown in. This section of Greenline #6 was logged in
the Fall of 2003, but the trail is still  intact and
almost as good as it was
