This route provides for a nice introduction to some of the relatively easy but very fun and flowy blue level trails that Ellison Provincial Park and Predator Ridge have to offer. It starts down at the Ellison Mountain Bikers parking lot, and takes you up quickly to a quick loop around Raven, then up the Parkway trail in Predator Ridge. Be sure to take a well-deserved break at the picturesque Yoga Platform near the top of Parkway. Then climb just a bit more and you will be ready to descend on the very fun and flowy Ellison Connector trail, and once back into Ellison Provincial Park you will continue on Typical Situation for even more flow with just a couple techy rock gardens, and out on Blisters Sisters for the perfect finish back to the parking lot.

Please respect the closure of the short section of trail. Amazing work done by Cam, Trail ninjas and NOCS today on two muddy sections that plague this trail every year. Give it a couple of days and we will open it back up once the mud has dried. We will see your tire tracks :-)

Great shape overall. A couple of tiny wet spots, but not an issue. Go ride!
