Description

This trail starts from Realization Point on Flagstaff Road. Just look for the sign!

Hike out of the trees and into an area where you'll have wide-open views of the mountains. Soon you'll come to a short spur trail called the Divide Overlook Trail. If you want, you can follow that short trail to its end for a view of the Continental Divide. Otherwise, just stay on the main trail eventually intersecting Chapman Drive which leads back to the trailhead at Realization Point.
