The other trail we choose to walk is the Kestner Homestead trail which begins at the same ranger station as the Maple Glade trail. This is also a loop trail which is 1.3 miles long from start to finish. The trail takes you to the homestead of Anton Kestner which he claimed in 1889 under the Homestead Act. Eventually, it became the home to the Kestner and Higley families. You can walk through the grounds and inspect the farm house, barn, and outbuildings. There is also an old moving truck that's rotting away out back as well.
