Two Lick Trail

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Two lick is a short very smooth singletrack
loop trail that can be ridden in either
direction. However it is best ridden counter
clockwises. Two Lick Bottom Trail splits Two
Lick trail into two parts and can be ridden to
add miles to the 5 mile main loop.

Great trail for beginners to expert. The trail
climbs a bunch, not real steep, just long. Do
not bail out though because your climb will be
rewarded with over half of the 5 mile loop
being an easy rolling narrow downhill single-
track.

There is one bridge on the access trail, one
on Two Lick trail and three on Two Lick Bottom
trail. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RIDE THESE BRIDGES.
EXTREMELY SLICK - ALWAYS.

Summary:
Two Lick Trail is about a 5 mile loop trail with Two Lick Bottom Trail cutting across the loop. You can use Two Lick Bottom to add miles or different routes to your ride to obtain more mileage. The most technical part of these trails is the switchbacks in either direction you ride it. Watch for these on your downhills. Of course either direction you decide to ride this trail you will be rewarded with a nice smooth rolling downhill through open hardwoods, pine forest, laurel thickets and only a couple openings. However, going counter clockwise will give you more than half of the ride the most downhill portion. As of July 26th, 2007 all debre had been cleared from the trails.

Recommended Route:
Counter Clockwise:
Take the access trail to the fork in the trail after the first bridge.
go right and at the next sign for Two Lick Bottom Trail go right again,
across another bridge and begin you climb. There will be a few level
and downhill grades to rest your legs on in this direction. About 1/3
of the way around this direction you will see the upper access to Two
Lick Bottom Trail, stay right on Two Lick and keep climbing. When you
see the woods to the left appear to have been a clearcut, start
watching over your left shoulder for a nice view if it's clear. When
you come to several switchbacks in a row and notice you are getting
close to the top of the mountain your trail will level out for a few
moments and then begin downhill. Be carefull here not to miss the
open view on your left. There will be one short climb and then more
downhill. When back at the sign, start the same climb however this
time take Two Lick Bottom trail about 1/3 way around and ride down.
Then ride main trail clockwise. About 13 miles total.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Laurel Creek loop beginning at Rimel Picnic area.
Pocahontas, Kennison Mtn., South Mountain, Cowpasture (all at Cranberry
Glades) and don't forget Tea Creek / Gauley Mtn. trail system near Slatyfork.
