FATMAP difficulty grade
From Nelson, take the rail trail towards Cottonwood Lake.
Once at the Highway, bike back towards Nelson about 100 m to Giveout Rd.
Take Giveout FSR, climbing up, keep right to stay on Giveout at junctions.
Follow the tracks on the route as the road becomes more unmaintained, eventually you link with Copper Mountain FSR (well maintained FSR).
This pops you out onto Blewett Rd to be taken back to Nelson..
There is no cell service for most of the FSR biking.
There are some steep, rocky sections on the downhill but still bikeable.
