The Little Divide trail is a less traveled connector between the Mink Lake Trail
and the High Divide Trail
. Starting at the intersection with Bogachiel River Trail
and Mink Lake Trail
, the Little Divide trail heads east along the ridge above Bogachiel River. The initial flat terrain dips sharply under a peak but then proceeds just below the spine at a pleasantly rolling grade. The forest here obscures all but the briefest peek-a-boo views of Bogachiel Valley and Mount Olympus.
Begin a gentle uphill contour around tiny Bogachiel Lake and then reach a notch that divides the drainages. After passing through the notch, head steeply down the flank of a hillside above Deer Lake. Say goodbye to the solitude you've experienced on the Little Divide Trail. Once that trail ends at Deer Lake and the High Divide Trail
, expect much more company on the trail.
Elk, deer, bear.
