    Nelson FR/XC Rides

    Looking for rides not to miss in and around Nelson, BC. Will be there in early Sept. Any help would be appreciated.

    Just got back from there. Pick up the local map book at Sacred Rides.

    XC

    Lockhart (epic full day)
    Paper Bag
    Vein

    FR

    Giveout Creek (multiple trails like Placenta, Highballer, Bedframe, etc)
    Goldmember
    Slabalanche
    Hitman/Doz Slabs (sick!)
    Kokanee Creek (multiple trails like Newtsack, Morning Glory, and Sitkum)
    Baldface

    Rossland is right around the corner. XC 7 Summits. FR, take your big bike up the first big climb on 7 Summits and exit down Plewman Basin to the Oasis trails.

    I'll have a trip report up soon, so watch the blog (link in my sig) or check out PinkBike in about a week.

    If you search Kootenay rides I put up a bunch of videos with trailnames on the Downhill/Freeride forum. As Smoke said, get the local map from the bike shop.

    Smallwood Creek has a great tech xc trail...it's in the guide book. Also I thought Log Jam on Svoboda was a great tech xc trail.

    And if you want an easy going stunted FR ride, check out 49'er. Such a fun trail with nothing over the top, with the lower section has some great steep sections. All doable on a trail bike.
