From Nelson, bike east up Hwy 3A, turn left onto 6 mile Lakes FSR.
Start climbing! You will go past the lakes, if early season, the water may be well over the FSR, be ready for some stream crossings! Bomb down Lemon Creek Rd, cross the Hwy and then connect with the Slocan Valley Rail Trail.
Cruise all the way back to South Slocan and then choose either the scenic route through Blewett, or busy Hwy 3A to get back to Nelson.
