The last 500 feet of the Spencer Mountain Trail at Poston is a brutal slow build...steep hillside, lots of rocks (boulders), and rooty. It's one of those sections of trail that you're cursing as you build it but ince complete will look like something out of Pisgah. Scott and I spent a few hours this morning chipping away at it and managed to bench in probably 200+ feet. The climb looked like it was going to be pretty tough but after leveling out spots by moving dirt around it doesn't look too overly intense (by Poston standards). Next week if we have a crew of three or more we should be able to knock all that bench out. The Spencer trails still need a good bit of TLC here and there and one bridge built but we can probably open it even before we get to everything...hopefully it will be open for business the first or second week in April. Carlton and Dan were also out and about at Poston today adding some berms to the turns! This dirt work is just what Poston needs to speed up the trail and add more flow. Thanks to all the workers including those who worked out at Kings Mountain today. PASA is getting it done!
