Starting from the Homestead Trailhead, head east out of the parking lot. Head past the Cherry Creek trail junctions and within less than half a mile you'll arrive at the ruins of the old Lucas Homestead, a unique concrete structure built in the 1800s. From here you can turn back or continue onto the Rimrock Trail and/or Creek Bottom Trail.
