The trail drops abruptly from the trailhead then begins a three mile climb along a stream in Lion Gulch. It provides access to the historic area known as Homestead Meadows where eight homesteads were established between 1889 and 1923. Information boards provide background stories at each location. Hiking to all the homesteads adds another 2.8 miles. See Homestead Meadows Trail. Lion Gulch trailhead accommodates approximately 35 vehicles.
Trail length: 6 miles
