Nice beginner’s hike, a good workout and lots of nice views, wild flowers, and people along the way. The trailhead in Deadwood is difficult to find. You will need to start at the Mickelson Trail trailhead and walk 300 yards west up the Mickelson Trail. The Homestake trailhead is a sharp turn to your right. If you come to the bench on the Mickelson Trail, you went 10 yards too far.
