Description

Start by heading up Bald Knob Rd. This is a two lane steep gravel road. As you climb the road you'll see your turn off for Homestead. As you descend this singletrack you'll pass under a large electric power line. Homestead will continue around a bend and start ascending. Once you get to the top of the trail you'll be on the Cliff Trail. Take in the view at this point before you descend the final part down the singletrack of Bald knob trail.
