A great introduction to Hassas Walls single trail (though a little over grown at the time of writing)

A tight and twisty start gets faster and steeper as you near the end of the ridge.

You pop out onto the fire rd a couple of time. At the end of the ridge head back in to the left before the tower and brace yourself for the infamous Ch6 rock garden.

High right to start and thread you way back to towards the center. If you make it though take the high right turn.

A long fast straight filled with Hwalls baby heads follows then it down left and into the maze.

There are a few ways down from here. I've included the most common and the one that gives you the longer run.

The "flat section" is on the single trail KOm on the road don't count

 Great fun! hard to negotiate rock garden in hard tail but still enjoyed this trail. Met Peter a friendly local who recommended Rydal trails which are a must if you are into XC.
