    Route Description for Homestead Trail

    The Homestead Hike is a great route for your daily mental health walks. Boasting epic views of the Front Range foothills that bound the city while wandering through the lush meadowland. Abundant with scenery, this well-maintained urban trail can be biked or hiked. Not to mention, this out-and-back route can be customized to your liking; if you are tired, simply cut it short and turn around! Note this path can be unbearably hot in the summer months, so wear sun protection!

    Departing from the trailhead off Stetson Hills Boulevard, the Homestead Trail travels south through Old Farm Park. As you meander through the meadowlands, be sure to keep an eye out for grazing deer! Eventually, the path will cross over Iron Horse Trail before entering the Homestead Trail Park. Follow the meadow-cloaked path south, all the way to Villa Loma Park.

    You can choose to continue further along the Homestead Trail, but if you are tired, simply turn around and backtrack along the path to the trailhead.
