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 south and the Reid Divide Trail is to your north.

As you enter the trail you're faced with a couple quick steep climbs. From there it becomes rolling terrain with short climbs and mellow descents. 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 techy descent, and one less uphill climb.

Staying on #800 leads to a moderate 1 mile climb, and ends with a more flowy, yet still steep descent. Almost no switchbacks compared to Boney, with some features like rock jumps and fairly good sightlines.
