When the ski season ends, Keystone Mountain's lifts keep running, ferrying mountain-biking enthusiasts to an extensive trail system with some of the most-technical downhill courses in the nation. Keystone's local bike path system also connects to more than 200 miles of scenic trails throughout Summit County. Keystone is sandwiched between the Arapahoe National Forest and the White River National Forest, giving hiking enthusiasts a wealth of trails to choose from. Hikes in the area provide stunning views of alpine wildflowers, high-mountain lakes and local wildlife. The Keystone resort offers guided hiking and biking excursions, as well as wildflower walks, ecology tours and other nature-minded explorations.

Take your bike up a chairlift and gain access to some of Colorado's most exhilarating expert downhill challenges with rock gardens, rock drops and high-speed features. Beginner and intermediate bikers can enjoy roller coaster rides over bridges and berms without the steepness or rock gardens you'll find in other areas of the park.The Keystone Bike Park is the offiicial training grounds for Yeti Cycles.
Keystone is also the hub for hundreds of miles of world-class single track. The trails of Keystone Bike Park combined with the trails branching from the Colorado Trail provide seemingly endless riding opportunities. Enjoy rides like the Keystone Ranch Loop, West Ridge Loop and the Aquaduct Trail.

Five new trails opened this summer – all of these are expert trails and most of them should feature an alternative trail that allows riders to avoid the larger feature and instead to hit smaller, less technically difficult features on certain sections of the trail:
- East Forest
This one will twist, turn and drop you. The East Forest trail gives riders two massive drops on the starting hill that will lead to many North Shore sections including a full 18-foot corkscrew and a huge wooden drop at the end. Don't worry – there'll be alternative easier ways around these features and down this trail.
- Eye of the Tiger
This rolling trail will wind in and out of the forest and offers manmade and natural features (bridges, berms, rocks, etc) with the option to try more difficult, expert (black diamond) features.
- Even Flow
Located lower on the mountain, this trail will be an option to Keystone's rocky, wild descent called Wild Thing (one of the resort's first expert trails). It'll be a steep shot with wooden berms and ramps and tight, technical turns.
- Helter / Skelter
These are both straight, downhill shots that give riders a fast fall-line descent.- through a chute in the trees.
Money features 22 table top jumps. What more can we say.
Beginner and Intermediate Trails
This is the most fun you will ever have on a green run and a great way to enjoy the downhill experience without being an expert biker. Runs like Let it Ride and Mosquito Coast offer roller coaster rides over bridges and berms without the steepness or rock gardens you'll find in other areas of the park.
Keystone offers Colorado's most exhilarating downhill challenges with rock gardens, rock drops and high-speed jumps. Try the new Money Trail, Wild Thing, Paid-N-Full or the Drop Zone.Trail Map
