The ranger was not visible, however, though Charley could see straight down the fire trail for a long distance.
The forester led his companions up the valley a distance to a fire trail.
The two boys never reached the meeting-place, however, for shortly they met Mr. Morton himself coming up the fire trail.

At the fastest pace he could maintain he jogged along the fire trail.
They passed through the gap in the mountain and started to cross the bottom to the fire trail.
