Trail Information

Highlights

Homestake Collection System Road is an easy dirt road that holds two purposes. First, it is the exit route and connector for vehicles that are coming off the Holy Cross City trail returning to Homestake Road. Second, it is a primary route for multiple hiking trailheads and a busy parking area for entrance into the Holy Cross Wilderness. The road is wide enough for two vehicles the entire way through and should not be an issue for any 4wd vehicle.

Homestake Road has experienced a washout which has closed the road, affecting access to Holy Cross.

Road open and in good shape all the way to the reservoir. Had to remove one dead fallen tree from road about 3/4 of the way up. Traffic up until Gold Park Campground was pretty heavy. Great views up by the reservoir.
