I've turned a few into bike trails in western OR. IMO they've rarely been ideal for an entire trail, but it depends on the terrain. Many firelines are too steep to make a sustainable multi directional trail, but using pieces of a fireline and rerouting where needed can get a bunch of trail done quickly. They make good moto trails too, especially since the grade going up isn't so important to a moto. All the good hillclimbs when I was in high school had started as firelines and were later converted to trails.PieRow said:After cutting alot of fire line this summer (all of nor-cal was burning) i thought about how many fire lines turn into bike trails.
I bet that alot of the fire trails cut would be excellent mtbr trails.
Any one have any experience with that.
Just a thought.
