Mountain Biking Green's Lick

*****   Add a review
#22 of 548 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#375 in the world

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."
