Accessing Capitol Forest couldn’t be easier, no matter where you’re coming from. There are eight entrances that surround the forest, from County Line and Rock Candy in the north, Delphi and Waddell Creek in the east, Bordeaux and Cedar Creek in the south, and C-Line and Porter Creek in the west. (They are denoted on DNR’s map of the forest in large bold type).
There are logging roads and spur roads throughout the park that lead you to trailheads, and those roads are denoted on the map in gray. They are organized by lines, A, B, C, D, etc., but Hannah explains that the trails all have unique names. “Some are based on features you can encounter on the trail, like Mima Falls, or the trailhead where they begin, like McKenny,” she shares.
