Lick Creek is an out and back trail (~1.2mi each way) that can be pinned from end to end, or slow it down to play on the growing number of trail features. It has ~10 berms between to sections that let you rail some corners, and a handful of progressive to impressive jumps. It also has a couple of challenging root sections that can test your skills on the way up, and tickle your pickle on the way down. This trail connects the parking area to the Chatham bike path, which allows you to access the Polecat segment.
