It was a cold morning out at Poston Park! More work done today and some trail recon as well. We started the day finishing up the connector trail that will allow us to stay off the powerline cut. Ben and I worked on benching the rest of the climb while Scott and Carlton finished cutting the trail up to where it attaches into the existing trail-bed. Once that work was complete we hiked up into the hills on the lower side of Spencer Mountain to scout out new trail. Although we do not have access/permission to build up the mountain (maybe one day) some of Poston Park's parcel does still sit on a pretty significant portion of the bottom slope of the mountain. We spent an hour or so walking the land and trying to figure the best layout for a trial in this section of forest. We will probably examine it a few more times and tape off multiple options before we cut trail; coming up with a good layout in this hillside terrain will be difficult and it's nothing to rush. The real challenge will be figuring a route back out of the hollar that's doable. This climb is guaranteed to be the worst at Poston...or best if you're into that type of thing!
