Is the top of the wall level and straight or does it follow the contours of the hillside? If level, it may be the foundation for an old mill - now gone. If not, it is likely just a wall. Either way, it was purpose built which always means a chance for relics or coins.

Good luck!

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Have you looked on the old railroad maps to see what was there?

If and when you get out there, run you detector on top of the wall...I am thinking it might contain pipes to funnel water from an underground stream down the mountain...
