Ride Category: Loop
Ride Type Ratio: 100% singletrack
Ride Distance: 15-ish
Ride Time: 2.5 to 3.5 hours
Trailhead Directions: Take exit 95 off I-5. Follow Littlerock Road for a
few miles to the Waddell Creek Road intersection, turn right. Continue to the
next intersection, turn left onto Sherman Valley Rd, continue to the next
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: Hop on Mima Porter #8 out of the parking area going
NW towards Wedekind (you will come to an intersection a couple hundred
yards in, go left). Follow Mima Porter #8 up to the old Wedekind picnic area
and cross C-3000 road onto Trail #30, go up to the intersection with Green
Line #6 and turn right and follow over the crest and back down to Fall Creek
parking area. You will cross a few intersections on the way down, just stay
the course with the trail you are on. It does get tricky at Fall Creek, with a
couple intersections that go to the camping area, you will find your way, if you
get turned around come out of the camping area and turn right on the road and
go about 50 yards to your car.
Ride Summary: This section of #8 makes for an excellent climb with a very
pleasant grade, up and over the crest is a roller-coaster-puker with an almost
"Cascades" feel due to the higher elevation foliage and exposed rock. The
descent down #6 rips and is getting better thanks to all of the hard working
volunteers from Friends of Capitol Forest.
Dedicated to Jackson, who's Cinco DeMio stories and colorful language
across the crest helped make this already memorable ride an even more
memorable ride for all of us!!!
