Trail RPM
Pretty sandy/shaly on the way down, couldn't rip as trail was pretty loose.
Climbe was fun, I'd prefer the trail that runs parallel (home run?)

Way over graded. Basically a green trail like all others in the park. Nice terrain, just not difficult if that is what you are after.

Ellision Connector will be designated as an up hill trail only while the new climb is being built. Expect EC to return to a down hill primary later this summer.

Considering the distance of it, this climb is easy to do. Whoever built the trail knew what they were doing, the way it's built makes it a breeze.

This trail has been extended (on the map) all the way to Dormie Point (now includes Dormie Pt. Connector and Upper Ellison Connector) to reflect the new trail naming system by Predator Ridge.

I only ask as there have been a few school trips to Ellison in the past few weeks. Maybe someone should notify WildsafeBC, just in case.

You can park up at the Fitness centre at Predator ridge and ride the Dormie Point road to the start of the Dormie Point trail but then you finish with the climb back up or park at Ellison and start with the climb. Coming from Kelowna it maybe better to start at the top.
