Firebreather is a short, freeride trail deep in the Hinesburg Town Forest. This one-way trail includes open rock faces, some small drops, quick berms, a few small optional jumps, and some quick punchy climbs. A great, overall test of downhill skill that will take fast riders less than 2 minutes to complete. Look for Lost Trail on your left as you near the end of Firebreather to get over to Passing the Horizon and Sheep Thrills.
