Default day trips around Radium or Nelson

Looking for some decent day hikes around either Nelson or Radium. (within an hour drive or so. 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive) I would appreciate any input.
Thanks

Kokanee Glacier trail is near Nelson ....lots of little lakes,excellent views, some mining history and a really old cabin filled with old pictures.
Sinclair/Kindersley pass near Radium is an awesome hike to a couple of easy summits on the ridge on either side of the Pass.
Further from Radium are Jumbo Pass, Bugaboo, Lake of the hanging Glacier, Pedley Ridge, Diana Lake. These are all easy and excellent trails!!

For radium area, Mr B's suggestions are great, especially Pedely Pass and Jumbo Pass. I'd also add Welsh Lakes and Mt Bruce to that list. You can get excellent info at http://www.summittrailmakers.ca/ or http://cvtrails.ca/
