I thought Ellison was a great place for a beginner. Obviously it is easy to find challenging trails in this area - finding trails that challenge me but not stress me is more difficult!
I always felt that you had a good handle on when to gently challenge me, and when to let me decide on what I was comfortable doing. I never felt pushed to do something I inherently was very nervous about.
Thank you Cindy and Julie for translating your passion for this sport in such a way that it's inspired me to love it, too! Can't wait to see you out on the trails!!!
Ellison was EXCELLENT for the skills we were working on! The trails were well selected and pushed us just enough to get us out of our comfort zone, but not so much as to scare the pants off us.
An excellent value for all the tips and skills we got.
