A remote trailhead and trail. ATV width and rocky near the top. Lots of shade and very enjoyable.

Use Nelson Creek to reach Garden/Pritchard/Jim's Hill as a point-to-point ride. Other out-n-back options exist.

Nelson Creek is also the start of the Carriboo Jack Route -- a singletrack journey across the Caribou Mountains to Thayne, Wyoming.
