Great views at the top, however I would rate this on the higher end of moderate. We packed a lunch and ate at the top.Liz Henson2 years agohikingGreat trail, not too far from Sacramento. I took Homestead trail to Blue Ridge trail & was rewarded with beautiful views. The trail is clean & well-maintained. Plenty of shady sections on the trail. Lots of poison oak/ivy however. Must watch where you step. I'll come back to this trail!Amanda Bartell2 years agoWe started on this trail and continued on the blue ridge trail to complete the loop. LOTS of steps, but definitely worth the gorgeous scenery. Bring lots of water!! One large water bottle per person was not enough for us. Look out for lots of lizards. Love this hike.Lori Holman2 years agohikingLoved this trail. It is a little bit of a challenge I will say I loved it but if your not a hiker it will make your Glutes burn all the way to the top. Tip: Start at the end and come back to the start. It is just up the road a little bit and makes it so nice on the way out. I will do this hike many more times it was a perfect day!Michaela Yelle4 years agohikingDid the loop to overlook Lake Berryessa.Mel Thoma4 years agohikingGreat for first time hiker,my first time out it was great, Mary Marubayashi5 years agotrail runningThis trail, just outside of Winters, CA, is a nice little jaunt for a Sunday morning. In the spring there are some nice wild flowers, and during heavy rainfall winters, the creek can get pretty full and is great. There is only one point where you have to cross the creek, and there is no bridge, just rocks, so if the creek is VERY full, you might have to get wet a bit. The Homestead Trail is only the first part of a 4.75mi loop trail, which is the best thing to do, as it overlooks Lake Berryessa at the top. From the homestead to the top is pretty steep, so bring water. From the start of the HS trail to the top is almost all in the shade. This trail makes a great running trai to train on, although since it goes up, then down, there's a lot of downhill. After a rain there are plenty of slippery parts of this trai. I believe dogs are not allowed. One more notable tidbit: there's lots of poison oak along this trail.
