Built approx. 15 years ago by a local rider, this trail has seen its worst due to a clear cut in the area 10 years ago, hence the name The Cut. But this trail has been revived and inspires old school XC gnar, which was praised by racers in this years (2019) White Rock XCO race. There is only a steep section at the very beginning on the left and a "B" line to your right as you enter the trail. For the rest it is a constant controlled rooty descent which will both challenge a seasoned technical rider as well as an intermediate rider.

To accommodate your desired riding style, at the end of the trail you have 3 option to finish off: The Chute for the more advanced rider, Wolf of Wall Street on your right for advanced riders and if you feel like an easy descent, head down Albert's Way. Another recommended trail by locals!!
