Mountain Biking Keystone Resort Bike Park

*****   Add a review
#118 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#784 in the world

There are lots of trails here for almost all skill levels (although I don't recommend it for first timers). You can either ride up the mountain or take the lift to the top (costs about $25 for a day pass to ride the lift). A map can be found at: http://www.keystone.snow.com/images/map.mtnbike.jpg. The green trails are long and rooty, the blues are steep and also rooty / rocky, and the blacks are dominated by guys on $7000 downhill bikes. A single run down the mountain takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Its a fun ride no matter which trails you take.

    I went to Keystone this week and it was my first bike park experience - I had a blast! Most of it is very rough, though you can find flow in certain sections. That said, I did stick to the trails on the west side of the mountain because I was not comfortable attempting the jump-oriented trails on the east side. I am tall and reserved a XL bike... the (excellent!) rental shop there did not have full DH bikes in that size so they gave me a Scott Ransom instead. It was still very capable but I wonder if the hand soreness / fingers freezing up that I experienced all day would have been better with a full DH rig. There was a big difference between black and double black trail segments I tried at Keystone: Wild Thing, rated black, was certainly challenging but I found it very manageable, while the double black Helter + Skelter each had a feature I was not able to ride. Braking bumps were prevalent; reportedly there is only a crew of 4 or 5 trailbuilders maintaining the 30 miles of DH track on the mountain. They did a great job building the trails, however; I loved how they used the terrain available and all the creative features, especially the long, bermed wooden stretches. My favorite individual feature was the step up jump at the beginning of Helter. For practicalities they have bathrooms at the top and bottom of the gondola run and a drinking fountain and small restaurant at the top. Can't wait to go back!

    This was my first time riding a bike park (a bit spoiled in NorCal - plenty of local trails). I should mention that we rode here on day 2 of the summer season. As such, the upper portion of the Mtn was still not open.

    Had a great time enjoying the lower portion of the mountain. The park offers something for everyone - from Greens to Blacks. Terrain is a bit rocky, but with a full suspension (rental) bike, things are still quite "cushy".

    Tral width, pitch, obstacles (rocks/roots) and features vary by selected difficulty. Since we were on the lower half of the mountain, we generally rode the "blues" with a couple "blacks" tossed in. We saw everything from the hardcore bikers, to families with children.

    Truly something for everyone here!

    Something for everyone. I was speeding down a blue trail, surprise tabletops with a VERY tight berm just behind it. Ate it hard, 10 out of 10, would crash again.

    Let's see... Killer singletrack, lifts, DH rentals, beer, food, festivities, and more. Pretty damn great. It's one of the best bike parks in the Colorado. The trails are gnarly. I've never been to a bike park or even ridden a DH bike but I ended up doing all the green, blue, black, and one double black (sanitarium). My Pisgah rising paid off and I was able to conquer Keystone. It was an amazing experience.

    Keystone offers full-on DH trails, a few of which offer some sections of new school flow... but mostly this is old school, rocky, rooty, highly-technical DH... and it's fabulous!

    Riders beware: Keystone is known for destroying bikes and components.

    Plenty of great DH trails to choose from and even some more XC-oriented stuff. If you really want a workout, skip the lift and climb some of the trails for free.

    If you want gnar, you'll have no trouble finding it here. When they say double black diamond, they mean it!

    Decided to pack up one day and drive from oklahoma for my first downhill experience. Rode the trails on my Trek Rumblefish and ate it up. Cannot wait to go back for more. Loved the trails, the town and the atmosphere. Nice to be in a place where they welcome bikers. I do suggest a downhill helmet along with knee and elbow guards if you plan on riding fast. Is there any other way?!?

    The biggest plus about Keystone is the long downhill runs. Great place to get in shape for racing. Down side at least in my opinion is the trail building at Keystone. The trails just dont have the flow you would expect, ex. long pedal section then finally a jump. Fun place to be overall though. Just bring your energy to be pushing through those pedal sections once and a while!

    An absolute blast. Never been downhilling, but heard how great Keystone was, checked it out over the weekend. I've never had that much fun on a mountain bike before. I tend to think ski trail ratings are pretty bogus, but downhill trail ratings aren't at all. Greens are real good singletrack, little rocky, little rooty, pretty long. Blues are a little steeper, bigger rocks, tougher lines. Blacks are amazing, they've got stunts and features in them in addition to being steep, having rock gardens, roots, etc. Double blacks are super tough, some with huge features (13' corkscrew for example). Anything you catch air off of is set up perfectly, no awkward take offs, real smooth landings. I've never felt that comfortable getting pretty decent air on a bike before. The Money trail is awesome, tons of table tops. East Forest has the corkscrew, great trails leading down to it also (Paid in Full, TNT). Highly recommend going here, just a ton of fun. Day pass is $35, but if you've got a season ski pass, knocks the price down to $25. Don't recommend doing it on a hardtail, wouldn't be to much fun. I've got 6" of travel and I bottomed it out a few times.

    even though this is a downhillers paradise, its a good ride up as well. Take the greens up (Easy Street>Sleepy Hollow>Bluegrass>Celtic Way>Let It Ride>Suz's Cruise>Girl Scouts) About 7 miles, 2500 ft gain. Then you've earned your cruise down.

    The trail crew at Keystone is doing a great job with maintence and building new trail and features. There are too many awsome trails to list with great features like gap jumps, tables, ladder drops, ladders, and well made, fast berms. This is mostly a bike park. If you want to climb(you may get run over), I'd recommend another area, there are tons in Summit and Eagle county

    This place is a downhiller's paradise. If you want to ride up the trail be careful, the people who generally ride here are not used to people going up. Out of about 25 people going down the trail only 1 yeilded for me. Many folks are visitors enjoying the luxory of taking the chairlift up and "riding" down the trail. Most are in over there head as they have never ridden a real mountain trail before and are fooled by keystone's green trail rating. The green trails are not steep but they are rooty, rocky and long. Blue trails are about the same but add a fair amount of steepness. The black trails...I did not feel like getting run over this particular day so I did not bother. I really wanted to see the "drop zone" but getting home in one peice overrode my curiosity.

    If your into downhilling or freeriding then Keystone should be on your trail list! This place is a blast to ride! If your a first timer to Keystone try to go with someone that has riddin it before that way they can let you know what to expect on the trails up there. I really haven't ridden the XC trails except for a couple of small sections so I can't give a good review on them but for the couple of sections I did ride they were a blast and I've also been told by a few of my friends that the XC trails are a lot of fun too. Also bring a camera (just make sure you pack it good, you don't want to break it if you happen to crash)! There's a lot of great scenery up there!
