Description

This trail drops quick and has a series of massive water-bar jumps on the way down to Upper Creek. The Northwest North Carolina Mtn. Bike Alliance (IMBA Chapter) recently partnered with the Table Rock Ultras for a restoration project on the Greentown Trail. Additional support from the Friends of the Mountains-To-Sea Trail Volunteers, and the State Trails Program were involved.

This section of trail is heavily used by mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers but well worth the ride. This trail can easily be connected up with other favorites in the Wilson Creek Area of Pisgah for a full day ride.

The trail has large trees down over the best sections. At least 3 on the first part. Can anyone boost these? The water crossing very tech — 0h 30m

Be very alert at the bottom of the descent. There are several drainage bench cuts on the trail. The last is on a landing. Almost went OTB!
