Wanted to do Homestead too but water was roaring! Nice thing is it made the falls GREAT and better than the trickle before, still had to pay the full $5 and they didn't tell us Homestead was uncrossable going in. The western side is far nicer but also the shortest part. It is a nice hike but nothing spectacular.
