The Divide Trail is a National Recreation Trail that covers over 30 miles along the Idaho/Montana Stateline. It is also known as the Stateline Trail to differentiate it from the better known Continental Divide Trail.
The Stateline Trail starts from the backside of Lost Trail Ski Area south to the head of Spring Creek near Dutchler Mountain.
The north Section is accessed via the Saddle Mountain Road and the trailhead is just a short distance beyond the Colter Creek Trail
The length of the north section of Stateline Trail is excellent singletrack with a smattering of difficult climbs and descents.
The large forest fires of 2000 are evident along the trail by the charred skeletons of trees and frequent deadfall. Bring a saw to help the local trail association keep this trail clear.
The northern half of the route can be quite beautiful in fall when the Larch (evergreen trees) are turning.
Be aware that this trail is shared resource among other types of users, such as mountain bikers.
