Reid Divide is the Longest section of Trail #800 it is tecnical old school tight singletrack. It starts at the Reid Divide Pass where Bill Creek is to your West and the Reid Divide Trail is to your East.

As you enter the trail your faced with a couple quick steep climbs. From there it becomes rolling terrain with short climbs and decents. Eventually the trail will fork and you're faced with riding the whole trail #800 or taking a right and riding Trail #801, Boney Gulch. Most Mountain bikers opt for Boney Gulch as it offers a slightly more fun Flowy descent.

More beta is needed on the actual Trail #800 descent.

      Rode this today and there were quite a few trees down about 4 miles in, both Reid Divide and Bonney Gulch. Fantastic conditions though!!!

      We rode this as an out and back by accessing it from the Tally Gorge trail. It rides well both directions, but it rides faster south to north.

      Tried riding Reid divide the other day but got put out onto a logging road about three quarters of the way down, just above the black diamond trail which takes you to tally lake. Anyone else had this experience too. I do remember seeing a steep climb to the right as I was on my way down. Should have taken this??
