Description

Homestead Trail (#12) is an old section of doubletrack that is generally used to climb up to the Boise Ridge Road. This trail is not for the faint of heart! We are talking 1000 feet of vertical gain in ~2 miles. The bulk of that elevation gain is broken into three hill sections with some gentle, mostly flat, recovery sections in between. In short, Homestead is a "climber's paradise."
