Keystone summers are every bit as beautiful and attractive as their winters; some might even say more so. The flowers come up and sun shines during the long summer days, giving plenty of time to pack in as many activities as visitors want.
Whether it's road biking the passes around the area, doing some cross-country single-track, or blazing downhill from the lift-serviced terrain, Keystone mountain biking is world-class. The lifts will haul your bike up the mountain for you, making for some fantastic trail riding.
Two separate courses, the Keystone Ranch Course and the River Course, offer golfers 36 championship holes to challenge their game. Make sure to take a look at the views as you wind past streams and shoot through the narrow fairways that define these mountain gems.
Scenic Lift Rides
What better way to get a mountainside view of the Ten Mile Range and Lake Dillon than by riding up on the chairlift. Head up to Dercum Mountain at 11,640 feet for some high-altitude, postcard-worthy views.
Hiking in and around the Keystone area in summer is a treat. Pick your poison, because there are trails of all types: short hikes, long hikes, steep hikes and simple strolls. Take the lift up to the top of the mountain for a quick leg-up to some great ridge hikes.
Between the Blue River, the Eagle and the mighty Arkansas, there are many options for rafters in Keystone. Both scenic floats and whitewater rafting are available.
Guided tours are a great way to get out into the local rivers to try your luck. Also, Keystone hosts fly fishing clinics for people just starting out in this beautiful sport.
The stables in Keystone offer rides of different lengths, from quick pony rides for kids to half-day excursions into the surrounding mountains. Let the horses tackle the ascent while you ride on top and appreciate the beauty of the area.
Rent a court from the Tennis Club for an afternoon of fun, or take a lesson from one of the pros to improve your game.
Snow tubing in summer may seem strange, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Normally holding out until July 4th, summer tubing is available until the snow melts.
