      Olson Park is a novice to moderate trail. It provides numerous trail options, including a continuous perimeter loop, as well as opportunities to play around on various connectors and detours. There is a mix of hard pack, some sand traps and wet areas (part goes around a pond), as it’s a former gravel pit. There are some bluffs with a good climb, some log jumps and several stretches of tight switchbacks. The Olson Park trail is the northern most portion of the unofficial Ann Arbor Local Loop trail network. With a little investigation, a rider can connect to 10+ miles of additional trails.
