    This is a loose and exposed single track that takes a pretty good effort to get to from Main Divide.

    Three miles of fun downhill are the reward you get for riding Main Divide to get to the top. There are ruts and rocks and at times you'll be skidding through the shale but it's all in good fun. Most people I know have left some skin behind somewhere on this one. Good stuff.

    Apparently, Motorway drops with an average grade of 17%... However, the trail is loose with everything from small stones to fist sized rocks, that don't do anything to help you grip the trail - and with some areas of exposure that feature steep, almost vertical drops that can be hundreds of feet down, you need to pay attention. But its an exhilarating ride!
