Trail Description
About this trail
Green's Lick is a quick, intense downhill thrill ride. Lots of good humps to get some air off of, and quite a few natural berms to ensure that you can keep flying down the trail. Fairly rocky, with tacky orange clay and a few creek crossings. One of the most advanced trails at Bent Creek. A great path to take from GoKite5's post on Bent Creek: "up wolf branch, up ingles field, up north boundary, down green's lick, up sidehill, up little hickory top, down ingles field, down wolf branch. About 11 miles."

Review: I love Greens Lick! I think the trail is extremely fast, semi technical, great burms, you have option to single track climb it or fire road up. Depends on the day.

Review: What a fun downhill! If you're at Bent Creek this is a must. The climb is no cakewalk but it is definitely worth it if you like flying downhill over rocky sections and with opportunities to get plenty of air. If you take it at speed (hard not to) be prepared for a thrilling, yet bone rattling experience..

Review: Fantastic downhill run. Rocky sections with moderate sized jumps and high berms. I prefer to get to the top climbing Ingles field Gap for a more gradual ascent.

Review: Lots of rocks on a steep downhill. Has some large berms and some of what I'd call pretty large jumps

Review: Awesome little down hill. If your willing to climb. Meaning push a bike up a mountain for an hour. Ride it. That seems to be the Western NC style. Great ride. Not super steep nor tech. There were a few jumps I was scared to hit. But fun. I would do it again. Lower Sidehill Rocks when you get to the bottom. A little climbing. But great trail. Super fun both of them!

Review: This trail is a must ride for anybody wanting to push themselves and who are looking for some serious adrenaline! The climb to the very top is brutal but the downhill makes it all worth it. There are plenty of jumps and berms to be had. However, be mindful of all the rocks. They'll rattle your hands numb.

Review: Fast DH, with some rough and chances to catch air, if you were so inclined.

Similar Trail: Ridge Line before July 2015 or Jim Branch or Turkey Gap extension into Grassy DH, but longer.

Review: Lot's of downhill. A palm killer too. Many rocks and jumps, but mostly rocks. The more you do it the more it grows on you. I wasn't fond of it in the beginning. Now, it's my favorite trail in Bent Creek.

If you're into tons of rocks and jumps, then this is for you.

Review: Great trail. I camped at bent creek and rode it 4 times over the weekend. The reviews are pretty true but if u don't intend to ride fast I wouldn't . I Ave 22 mph not counting a few flats. I love this section of trail at bent creek

Review: Not a highly technical run but if you ride fast it's *insane*. After 8 minutes of white knuckle speed, big jumps, and huge banked corners with a touch of hang time I had to peel my exhausted hands from the grips and bow down to one hell of a run.
