      Situated on the edge of the 1250ft Spencer Mountain in Lowell, NC is the terrain-fest known as Poston. The trail is arguably the biggest cardio challenge in the Charlotte region with more elevation change per mile than any other local trail. The topography has few flat areas so you are always either ascending or descending! Lot of benched hillside trail, plenty of twists, and nice super-tight singletrack! Poston offers nice challenges for all levels of riders as we’re always sure to think about the advanced crowd as much as we are the beginner. Beyond the trail layout and features the woods themselves are a real jewel. Multiple creek crossings, mature forest, lake views, sections of thick laurel that temporarily transports you to the Appalachians, and the significantly rare large leaf magnolia – Poston is more than just a trail, as these extraordinary woods provide a truly unique experience among the local trails.
