Steep and chunky with a few opportunities to send it big, Firebreak is a great option for advanced riders. Not quite as loose or as high speed as Botanical, Firebreak starts off with a set of nicely crafted berms that lead in to a relatively easy and quick traverse. Then the trail turns right and becomes much steeper and rockier from there. A few optional jumps and one big ol' hucker drop (with a ride-around), are up there mixed in with the big chunky rock gardens typical of this area. The final chute is very steep and pretty torn up now, but there is now a much easier, more sustainable reroute for the final chute!

Great condition, not overgrown at all. The last steep chute is pretty torn up, but a less steep reroute around it is currently being built!
