Description

This trail continues from Sunrise Trail. Expect loose rocks, creek crossings, tight switchbacks, and a few more rugged sections.

Just after the final descent, you'll cross a bridge over a creek and begin a doubletrack climb. In the last 1/4 mile of that climb, the Second Divide trail goes left and down, while the Third Divide (and main trail) goes right and continues up. The Second Divide is longer, but in my opinion, not as much fun as the Third Divide. Both Second Divide and Third Divide lead to the First Divide trail.

This is a popular trail with mountain bikers so be aware of your surroundings and other users on the trail.

Convenient "Bus Stop" next to a mining claim and camp.

Can't miss this trail junction and sign – downhill is the Second Divide Trail. Short uphill is the Third Divide Trail.
