Trail Description
About this trail
Homestead is approximately 4 miles long and begins as a doubletrack descent, but at a junction it hangs a hard right and turns into glorious singletrack climbing through the pines. Eventually you will crest the top and continue the bomber descent that you began a couple miles previous, only this time on super smooth singletrack! Homstead leads to the new Raspberry Ridge/Blackjack freeride trail, so look for that off to your left (if descending). If you’re not up to the rigors of black diamond rocks, keep rocking the smooth singletrack down Homestead to feed into the beautiful Sandy Wash descent.

Review: Nice flowy fun, but no gnar. Just seems to keep up the speed and fun as one heads back down BC.

Review: Homestead connects to Charlie's Cuttoff which is arguably, the best trail in the BC system. While you're screaming wooohooo on Charlie, you'll have time to be sated while continuing on the downhill through Homestead. It isn't bad, just not as fun.

Review: As you come off Charlie's Cutoff, the same flow continues on Homestead.

Review: On its own, this isn't one of the better Buffalo Creek trails, but it is a nice piece of singletrack that will connects other area trails.

Review: Charlie's Cutoff gets a lot of love, but don't overlook Homestead nearby. There are some really fun rock sections, and the singletrack is smooth, flowy, and fun. If you're coming from Miller Gulch, try riding down to the bottom of Homestead, then back up to Charlie's Cutoff.

Review: This was a nice flow on my way over to Raspberry Ridge. Nothing crazy before that turnoff but other riders that skipped out on the Blackjack route said there was some nice slickrock features further down the trail.

Review: This trail is decent, but its best attribute is that it leads to Blackjack
