    Peng Shi reviewed Homestead-Blue Ridge Trail

    over 1 year ago

    This is only a hard trail if you have small children, since there are a few rocky sections. For adults in descent shape, it's easy to moderate.

    I recommend going clockwise, follow the Homestead trail to the end of the canyon first and come back via Blueridge. This way you get all of your climbing done in one major stretch at the end of the canyon. This stretch is full of stairs and is the only really steep part, and it's much easier on your knees to go up than down. Once at the top, you'll be facing Lake Berryessa and the Blue Ridge for the rest of the hike, and it's mostly downhill from there.

    If you have small children, go up counter clockwise, the switchback at the beginning is very gentle. Go as far as your children can handle and turn around to come down the same way, the further back you go, the better the scenery.
