In the spring there are some nice wild flowers, and during heavy rainfall winters, the creek can get pretty full and is great. There is only one point where you have to cross the creek, and there is no bridge, just rocks, so if the creek is VERY full, you might have to get wet a bit. The Homestead Trail is only the first part of a 4.75mi loop trail, which is the best thing to do, as it overlooks Lake Berryessa at the top. From the homestead to the top is pretty steep, so bring water. From the start of the HS trail to the top is almost all in the shade. This trail makes a great running trai to train on, although since it goes up, then down, there's a lot of downhill. After a rain there are plenty of slippery parts of this trai. I believe dogs are not allowed. One more notable tidbit: there's lots of poison oak along this trail.
