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.

      Great condition and wildflowers were spectacular higher up. As much fun up as going down.

       Beautiful! Really nice both directions. Nothing too steep or technical. Very nicely designed and built. Thanks to who deserves it.
