Steep descent beginning at the fire lookout on top of Hogback Mountain exiting at Cottonwood Gulch near Nelson, MT. Mostly downhill with a few brutal climbs as the double track dips between peaks. Loose rock and large boulders litter the upper sections but it turns to dirt road as the elevation drops. Would only recommend riding one direction and you'd be best off with somebody to shuttle and drop you at the top.
