FATMAP difficulty grade
From Nelson, bike up to the rail trail.
Take the rail trail all the way until it meets the highway near Cottonwood Lake.
Take the second FSR on the left (about 100 m up the highway towards Whitewater).
This FSR makes a short but fun loop at spits you back out on the rail trail.
Then cruise all the way down to Troupe and bike back home!
