Divide is an entrance trail to the system that starts/finishes at a narrow grass park parcel on Alabaster Way, between #146 and #138. The trail approximately follows the divide between the Colpitt Lake and McIntosh Run watersheds, and affords great views of Colpitt Lake and the Halifax skyline.

Good in both directions, Divide is a mix of open granite, built rock-work, and imported gravel and dirt near the start where the trail crosses thick organics. A couple of small berms.

The new parts of Divide were built in Fall '17 and Spring '18, including trail day sessions by J.L. Ilsley highschool students.
