Originally a hiking trail KSB is not snow free until early to mid July most years. An aggressive punch up and out of the parking lot leads to a challenging forested climb that gets you to the open meadows at 1 km and gives way to many kilometers of cruxy alpine MTBliss. The usual turn around is 11km in at the Standard Cabin.

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...

 5hr round trip up Keystone. Very hard trail. Drank 3 liters of water. 3 cliff bars, 1 granola bar, lots of mio mix, 1 sandwich and steak bites. Ripped up back tire on descent.

 Incredible views and mountain trail. Take it seriously as no cell reception or easy out. If you can clean the first 1.5km you have skills and lungs of a pro...make sure to save something for the alpine. Although the meadows are blue, many climbs, switchbacks and slope exposure keep this trail black. Best not to ride when wet as fragile alpine environment. One of the better alpine experience around.
