Homestead Meadows, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, contains the remains of over a dozen cabins from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Lion Gulch Trail and Homestead Meadows span the lower and upper-montane ecosystems, a rich overlay of arable land, abundant natural resources and perennial water. It’s easy to see why this area attracted homesteaders, with miles of sprawling meadows uniquely suitable for ranching, hunting and building. Visitors will enjoy a moderate trek through diverse forests, rolling hills and an intimate look at these well-preserved historic sites.
