Originally a hiking trail KSB is not snow free until early to mid July most years. An aggressive punchy up and out of the parking lot leads to a challenging rooty rocky forested climb that gets you to the open alpine meadows at 1 km then gives way to many kilometers of cruzy alpine MTBliss and steep techy climbs. The usual turn around is 11 km in at the Standard Cabin.
Keystone is a remote alpine trail with NO Cell coverage and no water. Come prepared for bike failures, rapid weather changes and bear encounters. Please respect the trail and the alpine environment and don't ride it when wet.
Turn right onto Keystone FSR at 50 km on Hwy 23 North then follow the signs 17 km to the trailhead.

|Trail in A1 condition the whole way to the cabin. I went beyond (7KM) and it was a bit overgrown and not really worth it.|

|Perfect day on KSB. Trail is in excellent shape with a few minor muddy spots as a result of the frost coming out of the ground. Get out and enjoy...|
