“A varied route through the northern reaches of Island Center Forest.”— Brendan Ross
As Techmo proceeds, it alternates between thick fir and cedar filled woods and spread-out areas of newer growth. There's a lot of variety here, and the sense of solitude is great.
As Techmo makes a turn south near the unmarked intersection with The Gallops, it hits a perpetually muddy section. Strategically-placed rocks on the north side allow hikers to hop across the mess. Another connector south follows after as the trail makes an easy climb.
Techmo ends at the dirt road extension of 115th Avenue. Signs point the way to 115th Bypass fifty feet ahead, and the "trail" segment of 115th, which leads to the Mukai Trailhead.
Animal life includes smaller woodland creatures and deer, but the biggest draw to Island Forest is the wide variety of birds, more than eighty species in all. The wetland areas around Mukai and Meadowlake Ponds draw bird watchers from around the region.
