This is one end of the Homestead trail. This roadbed
leads from Bent Creek Gap road at Boyd Branch, down to the Lake Powhatan
Recreation Area road, where it is called the Campground Connector trail.
Then it continues straight across to lead to this point, where those
stairs lead up the campground. Straight ahead (where the riders are going)
is the north side of the dam. Keep going straight from there and you'll
pass the Hardtimes trailhead and eventually reach the Arboretum. If you
turn right out of the photo, you'll pick up the seasonal Homestead trail
which wraps around to the south side of the dam, then leads back to the
Hardtimes trailhead. It's a more technical route. Let's go!
