Offers multiple trails. One stays close to the river, the other passes by a beautiful open field. Not too easy, not too hard.

It was cool, but not cold. There was almost no wind so it was perfect winter hiking.

Beautiful February day. I did not see the ruins because we did not take the Homestead trail.
