Trail Information


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.

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.

The seasonal gate on Homestake Road has been opened, and the roads were plowed to the Missouri Lakes trailhead. Forest Service reports snow throughout the area remains along unplowed sections.
