Keystone is one of the original singletrack trails on Galbraith, dating back to the dawn of mountain biking. Probably originally created by motos, it was mostly clear cut a few years ago and re-routed and completely rebuilt - including an awesome bridge across the gorge at the bottom. Most people ride Keystone down hill and connect with Bottle Opener to access Oly or Keiser trails, although it rides uphill well and will put you out at the bottom of Wonderland if the goal is to climb to the Towers on singletrack.

Still super sloppy in the clear cut - best to take the old route down to the bridge if you ride this.

Very muddy, please stay off for a few more weeks and let this trail firm up.

Lots of snow, difficult to ride down. Okay towards bottom, not as deep.

 Good climbing trail, poor descent even for beginners. Nearby Happy Hour is a much better way down for all skill levels.
