Keystone is a tough, fun little piece of trail. Weather conditions and time of year affect it dramatically. Part of the tour de dirt race series. Trail is intermediate in difficulty. There are a couple rocky climbs that will challenge all riders and leave most pushing their bikes, but they are short. There are some technical flats that are likely to put you off the bicycle if you don't maintain some speed and pick good lines. Multiple small stream water crossings (depending on conditions) that are all hardened or naturally rocky. This trail is worth a special trip. Single speeders should consider 32x20 for fun and 32x19 if you are aiming for fast laps. Full suspension is not necessary, but potentially increases the fun in this trail. Multiple strava sections, so do your research if you are in doubt or think you could have what it takes to be the KOM.
