Great trail, it has everything. The climb from the Pinnacle Rice parking lot is just about 5 miles all uphill. The descent is challenging or thrilling depending on your definition of fun! I’m in-between, probably ride the brakes too much but I ride to enjoy another ride!

Beautiful trail but that is not something you will enjoy if you are out of shape. Going clock wise is straight up 100 degrees and humid. Better suited to bikers going counter clockwise. Bring rain gear we got soaked. Water but no falls and no views. This is a bike trail. Ccw is maybe better Gradual incline and a steep decline. Good luck. FML. Going to get beer

Good trail for mostly intermediate and above. There's a lot of climbing. I ride singlespeed and I finished it. Probably the best trail in the bent creek area. And as close as it is to Asheville....probably the best trail within a 30 minute drive.

I guess there's been a name change....so look out for "green lick" signs. I don't know....I'm not from around here.

This trail was renamed Greens Lick and is the most technical trail in the Bent Creek area. You'll encounter rock fields, banks, jumps, logs and a really nice booter at the end of the trail. Really fun and really fast. You can't let your guard down or some parts of this trail will eat your lunch. The climb is fairly intense to get to the trail head but totally worth it. I would suggest taking the Ingles Field connector to Ingles Field Gap trail up to five points where you ride on out to the trail head. Enjoy.
