Overview

This is a great loop route that combines two well-blazed and managed trails in the Green Ridge State Forest. You can park at the southern edge of Fifteen Mile Creek Road in pull over area near the historic Civil War plague.

Need to Know

From the parking area, walk down the road about 100 yds where you'll see a blue blaze on the right side.

Description

The Pine Lick Trail follows the creek before crossing back over the road and enter a wide, forested valley with an active creek. You'll cross back and forth over the creek multiple times, needing to rely on trees and rocks to avoid wading in the water.

Near a lean-to shelter, the trail splits with the well-blazed blue trail continuing to the left. You start climbing and eventually reach the intersection with the Purple Twin Oaks Trail near Old Cumberland Road. The Twin Oaks Trail meanders south through a wide range of forest and fauna until rejoining the blue Pine Lick Trail at the lean-to shelter.
