Road pushed all the way through; no hike a bike
Started in the early morning under lights and climbed to the top, across the ridge and then down to Olney Pass Kiosk, and then back to the car. Logging has pushed the road all the way across the ridge eliminating the heavy brush section to the tower. The logging road is well drained and of excellent grade for climbing and downhills but is still one heck of a grunt. It was an excellent morning, and now, without the hike a bike section, this is an excellent workout ride with great views of the Skykomish/Snohomish Valley. I still like the clockwise loop better. Track and pics.
