Description

The trail combination following Girl Scouts to Suz’s Cruise, Let it Ride, Celtic Way, Bluegrass, and Sleepy Hollow comprises an excellent top-to-bottom beginner run in the Keystone Bike Park. While Keystone has a reputation as an uber-gnarly downhill park, this beginner flow trail proves that anyone can have fun riding mountain bikes at Keystone!

Overall, this trail combination is an excellent beginner-level flow-style trail with beautifully-sculpted berms, rollers, and little jump opportunities. Even advanced riders can enjoy this trail—it serves as a great warm-up run at the beginning of the day.

Lower down the trail on the Let it Ride and Celtic Way sections, the singletrack does get a bit flat in places as it seems to traverse across the mountainside a little more than necessary. Most riders will have to pedal through some of these sections, which does tend to harsh the flow a little bit.

The beautifully bench cut singletrack throughout this section helps make up for the annoying flow reduction a little bit. The singletrack in this zone is a work of art, and most beginner riders will have a blast flowing through the tight trees on this serpentine strip of dirt.
