Summary:
Other than South Mountain in Phoenix, AZ, Keystone is where I "cut my teeth" in the downhill world. I love the versatility of the mountain which offers great tech skills learning, and areas to rip fast and send long. I spend a 10 days in Colorado every summer, and have ridden Keystone multiple days, for the last 3 years. On the trail bike, the blues and greens are fun, and somewhat flowey, compared to desert riding.
The ONLY complaint I have is what someone already said: Money could be a phenominal trail, if the tables get some re-shaping. They could take a tip from Winter Park's table top construction. I fell in love with this trail, until I rode WP, then when I went back, I wasn't so happy. But, they have dine some really nice berm work!
All in all, Keystone is definitely worth the trip!

Recommended Route:
IMO, Milky Way-TNT-Loggers Way-Sanitarium. Anything really.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
WP, Sol Vista

Summary:
Keystone is a great mountain for all levels of riding. They do a great job mixing features such as bridges, rock gardens, wall rides, drops, berms, and jumps throughout the mountain. As another person said the people are very cool there. Workers on the mountain will always hook you up with a tube if you pop one and help you out. There are all types of trails including beginner trails through expert dh trails. I could ride Keystone forever. If you love Dh/FR riding, i know you will love Keystone.

Recommended Route:
Cowboy up to Motorhead to Tnt to Paid in Full to Money

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trestle at Winterpark

Summary:
Excellently maintained trails and world class gondola service for the bikes. Its intense in some places and easy enough for children to do in others (that is if they have a general knowledge of how to control a bike). East Forest's Corkscrew feature is cool. as. s....t..........

Recommended Route:
all of it and as much of it as you can.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sol Vista Bike Park at Granby Ranch

Summary:
Fantastic place for technical DH with some skinnies.

For a downhiller:
Riding the top of the mountain (TNT/motorhead) is kind of lame. Rocky, some small 2-3 foot drops everywhere, nothing very exciting. Kind of old school DH, not much flow.

The bottom section is where it gets interesting. Even Flow/Wild Thing are fun on big bikes. There's some good turning drops and really tall wood sections. These make the area a place I enjoy going.

For the freerider: Everyone loves to talk about hitting the table tops on Money, but they really aren't very well built. It's a telling trail that's kind of a recurring theme on the mountain. The runs are a bit "classic" style and aren't super flowy.

Recommended Route:
Motorhead to Even Flow/Wild Thing

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sol Vista
Winter Park

Summary:
Keystone will rock your world, I dont care who you are.

This place is great they have everything from some of the hardest downhill on earth to smoothe easy singletrack for beginners.

Now someone before mensioned the people there. He said they were pretty well all as**oles.

I disagree.

I was flying down a black, fell, and broke my collar bone. So me and my friend are sitting here in the middle of the mountain with our 40 pound rental downhillers (I have a badly broken collar bone, 5 inches seperated one side almost punctured my lung)
Here comes a group of what looked like very experienced downhill riders. The leader of the pack stops and ask if im allright. We tell him our situation and he leves his 4K downhiller on the side of the track and carries my bike up the mountain for me while my friend carries his. The bike is messed up to say the least. While im still in the hospitle another one of my friends takes it back to the bike shop and they gladly refund my money for the rental in spite of all the damage i did to the bike

as**oles?
I dont think so

Shure there are some stuck up guys everywhere, im not saying keystone is an exception but dont let a few bad apples ruin the barrel.

Recommended Route:
Cowboy up, TNT, I forgit their all so fun

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Moab, fruta, if you like CC
