Trailhead Directions: Take exit 104 off I-5 to Highway 101. Take Highway
101 to Highway #8 West to Highway #12 South at Elma. Take Highway #12
to Porter and take a left onto Porter Creek Road to C-1100. Go straight with
a trend to the left at the next four way intersection onto B-Line and down into
Porter Creek campground. There is a large parking area on the right next to
the river about 150 yards into the campground.   

Route Description: Head back out B-Line and take a left onto C-1000 for a
good climb and then a short descent down to the intersection of C-line and
C-1000, you will see Mima Porter #8 trail on your left. The trail will traverse
and roll for a while and then there is a fast section that was recently clear cut
that rips. The trees may be gone, but the speed increased due to better visibilty
and a more open trail, just not so pretty anymore. Follow the trail down to a
stream crossing and stay on Mima Porter #8 at the intersection with Greenline
#6. You will come out onto a road (B-Line) go left and you will come to
where you parked in a few hundred yards.    

Ride Summary: This is a great ride that has a good road climb and a fast
singletrack descent. A couple miles down Mima Porter # there is an old
growth cedar stump, it is huge, probably one of the biggest trees that used to
live here. A reminder of what used to be.
