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 creek crossing is not trivial. It is a wide, deep section that requires rock hopping with a bike on your shoulder. May not be passable in high water.
Many riders will use 181 to loop or shuttle it. It can also be ridden as an out and back but be aware that the last mile out is very steep.
