Primary North/South corridor linking newer trails in the North to existing Brown's Ranch trails. The Divide Trail is also part of the 242 mile Maricopa Trail. The trail is much like most of Brown's Ranch: fast and smooth with little in the way of climbing or descending, with wide open desert views.

Access Info

Well-signed access from Hawksnest, High Desert, and Branding Iron Trails.
