Flowy Singletrack. Homestead is a very well thought out and constructed trail - built to last. A pleasure to ride in either direction, with a very consistent grade and lots of high G corners. Later in the season line of sight can be a problem due to long grass.

Access Info

Seasonal Closure: Every winter the PUD and CDLT properties in the the Sage Hills are closed from December 1 to April 1. In winter, mule deer move down into these lands and, at a time when they are nearly starving, they can ill afford the calorie expenditure needed to avoid people and pets.
