Tyaughton Creek mid-section is normally used by accessing from either Relay or Lorna areas, or as part of a circle including Deer Pass from Spruce. It's a roller coaster ride through forest bands and grassland meadows that will work you both ways, more so traveling upstream, of course. Four significant river crossings, generally knee deep, along the way. If water is up, it is possible to bushwhack high above to avoid.

NOTE: At the request of Parks, please do not post times to the leader board for this or any Parks trail. Respect this wish and help ensure the experience of riding in the South Chilcotins will be available for years to come.

       This trail is way more black than blue. While it doesn't have the elevation gain and loss of other area trails it is rooty, rocky, technical, and typically with many muddy and boggy sections, especially in early summer. It also features several significant river crossing, especially during times of high flow, use caution.

       Great trail, definitely techy for a blue rating however all the black trails in the area seem to require some hike-a-bike which this trail does not if you're a strong rider so blue probably fits?... certainly more technical than other blues (i.e.Taylor creek or Spruce Lake main). After you complete a creek crossing take a moment to look to see if there is another creek crossing 10 meters around the corner before you gear up or you'll end up taking your shoes on and off several times for no reason
