Last weekend myself, Ben, Russ, and Scott got out in the woods and worked on the reroute climb I had cleared a path for the week before. Yesterday Russ and I spent the morning finishing off all the bench-work so now the new line is 100% complete and open! Expect it to be horribly soft for a while but in the end it will be an easier, more sustainable climb while adding a little bit of extra trail distance. Be sure to take time to admire Russ and Scott’s rock bridge, it’s a work of art! There’s more rerouting to come over on this section of trail as we will continue to design a better climb and incorporate some downhill run at the end to reward the climb. We will also be moving the trail off the old double track road behind the neighborhood to farther back into the woods making a new singletrack line. Last week we also cut a new line that stays on the back side of the small pond which connects you to the trail behind the soccer field without having to come out to the powerline cut. We revisited that line yesterday as well and did a bunch of rock armoring on that section. It’s good to be back out there bettering and expanding Poston Trail!
