Rough, rugged, remote and steep! I rode six sections down through Mott. Nearly all of the sections are cut into sides of steep canyon walls where you need to not hit your bars on the up side nor slip down the down side, sometimes hundreds of feet down to the river. Dozens of steep, fast downhills to stream crossings, then climbs up from the crossing, rinse and repeat for hours. Beautiful scenery, but it's hard to enjoy it when you are focusing on not falling down the steep slope to the river below. Several climbs require hike-a-bike, and even then it's tough to get foot traction to push the bike up, and the trail is barely wide enough to stand next to your bike. If you're adventurous and a skilled rider, you'll love it!
