Keystone, Colorado: Upscale Resort Town near Mountains and Alpine Lakes
Located about 75 miles west of Denver, the resort town of Keystone is lined with four-star restaurants and high-end shops, but Keystone Mountain is town’s focal point. Two gondolas are among the 20 lifts that scale up Keystone Mountain, which transforms into a scenic park for biking, horseback riding, and guided hikes once the summer begins. Take the gondola to Adventure Point at top of the mountain to tube-slide down a snowy hill that stays slushy well into the summer. The area also features two championship golf courses that stretch past pristine lakes, meadows, and the Snake River.
At Keystone Lake, you can spend a day canoeing, paddleboarding, or fly-fishing. Snake River, which runs adjacent to the lake, also offers fly-fishing. To the north, the Arapaho National Forest stretches across 1.5 million acres of protected mountains and grassland laced with hiking trails.
