The Wall - The entire Wall ride is a challenging 6.8km, buffet of trail. Anyone with an appreciation for trail design and hand built trails must ride The Wall. Laid out during 140 hours of scouting with his dog Diesel, and hand built over four years, Austin's masterpiece was completed in the autumn of 2018. The Wall has a little bit of everything: interesting terrain, natural technical features, spectacular views, fun descents, and tough climbs.

Upper Wall (The Wall Part I) - The top portion of The Wall is 2.4km technical and physical challenge par excellence. The trail wonders all over the hillside and can be hard to follow. The key is to hold your line when crossing over the other trails. To find it, pay close attention at the top of The Darkside climb. You will need to take a hard right at the very beginning of The Deep End descent.

       I will start of by saying this trail is amazingly well built, and a ton of working went in to it from almost only one builder.

      Now my review, if you like to just descend STAY AWAY from this trail, on the upper part of this trail there is no section that is longer than 10 seconds of down. Tons of pedaling for not much reward for us enduro riders.

      If you are a cross country lover then this is the trail for you, tons of cool features, technical corners, and great views.
      E-bikers will love this trail as well.
