A fun circuit around Ellison Provincial Park! This version climbs up Blisters Sisters, heads out of the Park to Ellison Downhill (A challenging climb, rewarded with a fun downhill!), and returns to the parking lot on Typical Situation. There are many variations possible, it is also fun to climb up Typical Situation and come down Blisters Sisters.

Don't forget to take the Nature Trail down to the campground and beach at the end... the perfect way to finish a great bike ride is on the beach!

We're doing a bunch of testing right now. Here are select few clips that have been very roughly assembled. We still have a lot of footage to wade...
