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.

Quite a bit of standing water on trail. Took a fall on Freedom Bridge and nearly lost bike over the edge - need to slow down a bit, it is slick....

Particularly sloppy near freedom bridge (of course), otherwise pretty tight for being wet

There is one wood bridge that's damaged, but an easy ride around right now.

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