Former Troad (road converted to trail)....Greens Lick is a machine built trail designed by Trail Dynamics as a demonstration trail showing the forest service how eroded road beds could be converted to sustainable trail. Formerly smooth as glass, it has taken on a very natural character with lots of rollers to soak up or jump. Technical features are speed and lots of loose rock in between sections of high speed red clay.

Logs embedded in the trail have been installed to signal technical terrain.

Access Info

3 Primary paved parking areas, Rice Pinnacle, Hard Times and Boyd Branch all have backcountry toilets and Bent Creek Campground/lake is within the Forest boundary as well.
