Trail shared by Dana Prosser

A beautiful trail from Realization Point on the backside of Flagstaff Mountain.

Features Birding · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Family Friendly Earn easy, but rewarding views of the Indian Peaks on this mellow-going trail.

Dogs must be leashed on the Divide Overlook Trail.

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.
