Description

When the tornado of 2010 hit and wiped out portions of 5 different trails, WNYMBA constructed a bypass to keep trail connectivity. This bypass starts at the end of the Rock City White Trail and immediately brings you to some more very interesting house size boulders, with the trail weaving among them. Soon it takes a left for a sidehill bench cut section that affords a view of the tornado devastation (the timber has since been salvaged) on your right.

The sidehill section ends when it intersects Billygoat Trail.
