The Hexham course is set well back from the nearest road covering a range of terrain from open paddock to river bank with a ‘point’ area offering that ‘away from everything’ feeling of peace and quiet nestled in the bend of the river.  The course has been designed to offer some technical challenges and the newly constructed water jump offers a wide expanse of water to get through with the addition of two water filled ditches.
