The Divide is located in beautiful El Dorado County between the Middle and South Forks of the American River, nestled in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Foothills and Northern California's Gold Country.  Access is through Hwy 50 and Hwy 80, making it in close proximity to the metropolitan city of Sacramento and the recreational activities of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
