After our first overnight barge trip with our quads, we wanted to try it again with a different destination. After contacting Western Forest Products about logging activity on Powell Lake, we chose Olsen's Landing.
We've been here before, but on a long ride from Powell River via Southview Road, Theodosia Main, and Olsen Main.
At the ramp, the wind and waves kept pushing the barge out of position. I took a pike pole to brace the rear and Wayne drove off the two bikes. Then we moved over to the dock to tie up. We decided to ride first and set up camp later.

Though narrow, the old logging road was still in good condition and went through some old second growth trees. Even though the lower forest was becoming summer dry, lots of little creeks were still flowing into the main river channel.
After backtracking to the junction, we continued on to Olsen Lake.
Some of the water from the Theodosia River feeds into the head of the lake.
It's a lovely spot for a rest and a bit of fishing.
We rode back along Olsen Main all the way to the dock on Powell Lake. The wind had died down, so setting up our tent was much easier, and we didn't have to worry about it flying off into the lake during our absence.
