FATMAP difficulty grade
From Nelson, head out towards Rosemont until you hit Innes St W.
Stay on this until it becomes Knox Rd and then Granite Rd.
You can either turn left at Blewett School, or go past Georama growers and down the big hill.
Either way you will have to do a climb.
I prefer going down the Georama Growers way first, so I get a nice downhill cruise past Blewett School on the way home.
For the full distance, go all the way until you get to the Kootenay Canal and back to the highway.
