    Capital Forest RR (8-50-GL6)

    Saturday a group of us decided to go ride the old Poker run loop at Capital forest and try out Greenline 6, since none of my buddies had ever been there.

    It, rained, hailed and snowed, but the sun did come for the 2nd half of the ride. Mima 8 on the way up was a little muddy, but really not bad at all. No deadfall or anything, and the only time I got off the bike was to cross the river, but it was ridable. Trail 50 uptop was snow covered, but still very ridable too. Greenline 6 was incrediblely fun. It was muddy in spots, but is was surprisingly in great shape and the lower buff section was pretty tacki and easy to ride. No fallen trees or anything blocked the trail, so we were able to fly down it without any stopping.

    At the end of the our bikes and bodies were completely mud covered but it was totally worth it. I cant wait to go back out there when it is dry out, but even in the mud it was a great ride.

    Thanks Mr. L for the info, been thinking about conditions at CF. Last year about this time we started riding the Porter Creek side of the forest, and conditions were great. Going to get down there real soon.

    Big props to those who do work out there in the middle of nowhere! We rode a 10 mile loop and i dont remember going over more than a branch or two and at no point did we have to stop due to windfall.
