Concrete Block is a technical singletrack trail connecting Firelane Trail Extension and the lower section of Iron Gate, named for several sections of concrete rubble embedded in the trail. You can enter the trail from the Iron Gate side between the bridge drop and the clay pipe, and you'll cross over a narrow bridge above the creek. The other end of the trail can be accessed from the west side of Firelane Trail Extension just a few feet uphill from the Roller Coaster crossing.
