Ellis Creek Canyon, whose waterway is named after Tom Ellis, the first white settler, postmaster and cattle-baron in Penticton, offers numerous interesting recreational trail areas to explore, including several which appear elsewhere in this book. The trails described in this chapter were constructed by various groups including those under the supervision of what was then known as Canada Manpower, along with help from local forest fire-fighters. This particular trail network consists of three components: a pair of loops to the edge of a steep, scenic canyon and a linear trail which shadows the Beaverdell Rd.

 New 'skills' portion at top was quite enjoyable. Low consequence features that will hopefully stand the test of parties, motos and general douchebaggery.

 Will add a bit more stuff to that nano-skill park in the future, as well as a few more lines off the trailhead. Have three more pre-built stunts to stick in there as well.
