Bent Creek West Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This loop explores the western portion of Bent Creek, which is traveled mostly by mountain bikers. But don’t let the fat-tire enthusiasts keep you off the trails. You’ll enjoy terrifi c views from Stradley Mountain, and there’s plenty of room on the trails for everyone. Th is route off ers a diverse range of technical singletrack trail, old roadbeds, and wellmaintained dirt roads. A strenuous climb up Green’s Lick Trail will reveal views of west Buncombe and south Asheville. From Ingles Field Gap, a gentle downhill stroll will lead back to your car at the trailhead."
