Description [Suggest Changes]

Named for the historic homesteads surrounding this trail, Homestead doesn't actually directly encounter any homes.

Starting from Towhee, Homestead Trail heads due west and contours the hillside. At ~.25mi, the trail heads due directly north and switchbacks four times to gain the ridge. Once on the ridge, Homestead Trail is very straightforward. The last semi-technical aspect of this trail is a drop into and out of Shadow Canyon proper. From here the trail contours north, eventually connecting with Mesa Trail.

Keep an eye out for Rattlesnakes.
