An alternate access route into Homestead Meadows.

Features -none-

UPDATE: This trail is not usable. The access to Homestead through this road, 120A, is now in question due to construction and logging with a gate across the road with "Private" on it. We tried to ride it and it has been closed.The best way to get to Homestead is by taking the Moose Meadow Trail to the top and turning down to 120A where it is still not private.

Description

The first half of the trail is a gravel road that provides access to a couple of Hermit Park cabins which are available to rent. At the end of the gravel road, the singletrack begins. It leads you into the woods and up the side of a hill. This uphill has some logs laid across it that act as water breaks and some of them may pose a challenge to get your bike up and over, but its all rideable. The trail has many loose grapefruit-sized rocks to look out for.

After winding your way through the woods a bit, the trail terminates by dropping sharply down to Road 120. This descent to Road 120 is highly technical and will probably be very challenging for most.

Not usable due to construction, logging, and a "Private" sign on the gate. Use the Moose Meadows trail to access Homestead meadows. 1mi

Half of this is private property, so you might want to go another way.
