Losing brakes anywhere behind the wheel is a scary notion, but if you happened to just cut a brake line you're still in luck. Use a pair of locking pliers to apply pressure directly above the point where the line is damaged. This will allow the fluid access to the other lines and give you enough stopping power to make it off the trail. Be sure to check the brake fluid level before attempting to drive the vehicle any further and add the required fluid as needed.
