Anything single black or higher, though we will probably only do single black with perhaps selective double blacks.
Are we going to hit this trail? I want to go up Firebreak Five.
Yes. That video was pretty accurate of the conditions I last saw it in, but that trail sees a lot of use and can change dramatically with the knuckleheads that like to go in and spin tires to chew it up. Sometimes it's difficult, other times it's laughably easy.

I didn't look at it but the map does say it is required. If I can hurry up and get a real
one, I'll have one or two cheesy ones to hand out.
If they are under Regulated Fire Use, then it gets more concerning:
NO SMOKING – except in designated campgrounds, developed recreation facilities, designated dispersed campsites or in the closed cab of your vehicle (doors on and windows rolled up).
· NO OPEN FIRES – no campfires or charcoal barbecues except at designated campgrounds or designated dispersed campsites at which ODF has installed metal fire grates. (Propane stoves and gas barbecues are OK.)
· NO NON-INDUSTRIAL USE OF CHAINSAWS – except as waived by the Forester.
· NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES OFF ROADS – Designated OHV trails in areas covered by the waiver for OHV use remain open for use during Level 2 industrial fire precautions (IFPL). Trails in areas covered by the waiver for OHV use close but the roads in the OHV areas remain open for riding during Level 3 industrial fire precautions. These areas include the Browns Camp Area, Lyda Camp Area, Jordan Creek Area, Diamond Mill Area, and Trask.
· NO FIREWORKS.
· NO WELDING, ARC/TORCH CUTTING OR GRINDING OF METAL.
· REQUIRED FOR ALL VEHICLES OPERATING IN THE WOODS (except dirt bikes and quads): 1) 1 gallon of water or a 2.5 pound fire extinguisher 2) 1 shovel with an 8 inch blade and at least 26 inches long from the tip of the blade to the tip of the handle
