Mountain Biking Olmstead Loop

***   Add a review
#271 of 1,004 mountain bike trails in California

Intermediate ride with some good climbing. I rode the loop clockwise, but I got the feeling that most go the other direction. The trail is fairly well marked, but I got off track a few times. If confused just stay on the most used looking trail and lood for knobby tire tracks. This is a popular equestrian trail too so be on the lookout for horses. It was also fairly muddy this time of year which can be quite a mess when you throw horses into the mix. Probably best to ride in June or later, however, the wildflowers were really in blume.
