My wife & I walked the Homestead and Sweetgum Trails this afternoon, It was a perfect day and this is a very nice walk. We had a Red Tail Hawk fly about 4 feet off the ground, about 10 feet away from us chasing a squirrel. The squirrel got away, but what a sight! There are great views of the lake this time of year (December). The trail is well maintaned and you can walk two abreast the whole way.

While the trails are some of the best maintained in the state, be ready for loud noisy people with lot of dogs, many off leash. We try to only hike these trails on weekdays to avoid the crowds and dogs. Homestead is great, look for the chimney of the old homestead, don't forget white tail trail from the lodge. If like us you only want to hear the sounds of nature while hiking these trails are not for you. We use them when there is not time to drive to a more 'natural hike'. My rating is low only for the loud people and numerous dogs. Hiking etiquette is not well known on these trails.

The trail is excellent. A wonderful combination of hiking and history. We did the white/red trail combination for a total of 5 miles and it was a perfect afternoon. The white trial was a good opportunity to get the heartrate up and get a good workout and then the second half of the hike (red trail) was a place to slow down and take in all the beauty and history. A little crowded on the red trail but still worth the drive.

Great family trails. The 5.5 Homestead Trail has nice views of the lake and is quite an easy 1/2 day hike. Throw in a picnic on the water, and you are set.

We did the Homestead Trail, around noon on a Sunday. Perfect weather - around 60 degrees. The markers said the trail would take 5.5 hours. It took us 2 or so. Yes, we walked a little fast but did stop to eat, take pictures and even saw a deer. It's a beautiful trail and I highly recommend it. The terrain isn't too tough, just watch for big tree roots to trip over. It's easy to do this trail at your own pace, whether you're old, young, in shape or not.
And a baby jogger could do this trail easily.

I recently hiked the Homestead Trail and it was great. An early fall morning and the air was crisp. Mostly easy flat/slightly rolling terrain with a few uphills. Greatest thing was the 13 deer that I say. Some very close. Excellant trail, especially first thing in the morning.
