This section of the Tyaughton Creek Trail could be called "the weak link in the chain". Not flow-ee, with blowdown occurring regularly, some requiring creative bushwhacking to pass and some sloughs along the way. In a few spots, you may find yourself on a game trail, rather than the trail itself. This section is ridden as a means to an end, not for the love of it. 'Nuff said?
