A Request for help at Olsen (Notheast) Park in Ann Arbor

Postby bill_m » January 4th, 2005, 4:10 pm

Can or has anyone measured the various sections of trail at Olsen (formerly North East) Park? The city is working on a trailhead map and would like to include distances. I hate to admit that I don't have a cyclo-computer on any of my mountain bikes! Anyone with a GPS could really do an accurate job.

The tough part is that the proof needs to go to the designers by Friday 1/7. If anyone can help, please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to let you know we used the GPS trail data to establish the
lengths of each one.
These are estimates of what we calculated:

Woods = 1.25 mi
Ponds = .60 mi
Bluffs = .35 mi
Plateau = .75 mi
Central = .70 mi
Perimeter = 2.5 mi

That's a total of 6.15 miles! Very cool and there is more trail to come.
