FATMAP difficulty grade
For the scenic route, from Nelson, bike through Blewett to the Kootenay Canal.
Take the highway but turn right towards Slocan, and then left towards Pass Creek.
We chose to go right at the red bridge onto Krestova Rd make another loop, and then biked all the way to Castlegar.
On the way back, stay on Pass Creek Rd back to the red bridge.
And then all the way back home!
