Keystone Gulch Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Ski touring or snowshoeing up the wide, gradual Keystone Gulch Road brings you to some of Keystone Ski Area’s alpine ski lifts. This outing ends at the Santiago Lift, where there are food facilities, picnic tables, and toilets. The return is one continuous glide, with occasional double-poling.
Begin on foot up the wide road to the southeast. Ascend gradually as the road snakes up the valley through the forest. Stay on the main road, which reaches several huts and lifts on the left at a junction, after 3 miles from the trailhead. The road continues up Keystone Gulch, but you ascend to the left. Here is where the views open up. Enjoy the amenities and the scenery before your pleasant return."
