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 or Morning Glory, but it has a few sections that are definitely steeper and rockier. 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. While this trail is unsanctioned, it is NOT illegal to ride.

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!
