New trail connecting the Ellison Provincial Park trail network to the Predator Ridge trail network. Built professionally, and you can tell by the beautiful flow. This is a must-ride if you are getting to know the area, usually ridden in a loop climbing Parkway and descending Ellison Connector.

Sow with cubs still in area, be bear smart. Good bear, no signs off aggression.

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

Mostly in good shape, but there are some spots where small creeks cross and flood the trail.

 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.

 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.

 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.
