Breakdown is the mid-mountain descending trail at Mountain of the Rogue
. The tread is a bit wider than Arm Bar
and has a mix of challenging and playful elements.
To start, the trail rolls across the level from the intersection with Arm Bar
and then tips downhill quickly through a series of steep rollers.
As the trail bends around the mountain to the north, the route drops through some rocky ledges flanked by small cliff bands on the hillside.
After the last drop, the next section of Breakdown dives into madrone trees and over a few thunder patches of trail that end at a small rock garden. From there the route makes a big left-hand turn and then follows a long continuous descent over deep rollers, through a mix of forest and open hillsides, to the top of Pay Dirt
