Homestead TrailSpecial Accessible Trail for Entire Families

The Homestead Trail is a 0.7 mile trail designed for accessibility by persons utilizing adaptive equipment and for families to enjoy together in a beautiful natural setting. The trail winds through a diverse forest, arriving at a picnic table in a forested glade at the base of Amos Mountain. The Homestead Trail name refers to the cultural features that can be viewed along the way, notably two stone foundations and a handsome stone wall, now deep in the forest, that once defined homestead pastures. Beginning at the Gallie Trailhead at the Heald and Bradley Pond Reserve, the trail is identified in blue on the trail map: Heald and Bradley Ponds Reserve
