Olson is trimmed!

Also, That One Spot In Olson (tm) is almost dry! Now that I've said, expect monsoon season to start...

Thanks everyone who came out to help at Olson and Barton parks over the weekend! Olson still needs a little lover in the NE corner.

Please keep an eye out for a pair of long blade green loppers, mine fell out of my backpack on Saturday, most likely on the NW side of the park/pond. They've also got some green camo with skulls duct tape on the handles.

thanks!

Rode Olson on Sunday and it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who helped get this trail trimmed up.

Is it possible to get an updated map of Olson posted? The one on MMBA is from 2001 and is listed as a preliminary layout. Some of the trails on that map don't exist.

Posted at the trailhead?

This is reasonably close - I'm missing some of the stuff on the west side, but that's because I get lost in there.

Thanks. Doesn't look like I missed anything. I rode thru that West section and what I did was take the 2nd left which then loops around back to the main trail and then you continue down just as before you made the 2nd left. Make sense? Ride it a couple of times and you'll add it to your ride every time.

Here's the alternate path on the west side. I agree that it can be hard to follow, especially now that the grass is longer.

Not exactly the same route as you but this is how I got through the other day.

Rode it on the CX bike today and everything was in pretty good shape. A couple wet spots here and there (one big puddle in before the switchbacks in Olson), but as a while its running well.
