Description

NOTE: Don't clip your handlebars on the rock faces and point your bike off the edge!

At the end of Third Divide trail, you'll have continued along the fire road for about a mile. You'll come to an obvious open area just before the fire road starts upward, where First Divide (upper portion) sneaks off to the right. Look for a little sign that says "Trail" with an arrow. First Divide is relatively flat/descending singletrack, pedaling most of the way. At times it's quite narrow with a rock face wall on one side and a drop off small cliff on the other.

At the end, you can cross the fire road and continue onto First Divide (lower portion), or take the fire road down and back to Downieville.
