      Providing the mountain backdrop south of Nelson, Giveout Creek and the Gold Creek fork are without a doubt the most popular riding areas because of the longer trails and more vertical descent. The riding here is characterized by lots of steeps, roots, stunts and rock covered singletrack.

      This area is best shuttled up the Giveout FSR. Dirttours in Nelson has drop-in shuttles on Wednesday & Thursdays nights during the summer.
