Keystone Keeper

I guess this would be my first high country ride of the season.

I have done Keystone Ranch a few times, but not the Soda Creek area. So, it was a partial new ride for me. It was a beautiful morning!

The ride begins with a mix of wider single and doubletrack through some rollers and pine beetle ravaged forests.

Once away from town, things single out a bit.

Time for a short regroup after the first climb.

Nothing like the true meaning of singletrack!

We hit up some Blair Witch. Someone took away most of the logovers! That used to be a real cool section for me since it reminded me of the swooping logover trails in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.

There seems to be an endless supply of skinny fun.

After a four mile ride up the dredging road, we stop for a snack before the dreaded West Ridge climb.

And so the pursuit of the Colorado Trail begins.

Only to be followed by a nonstop nine mile downhill back to the start.

The black and white photo with your apparel in color is a cool photo.

Looks like you had a great time.. It's beautiful up there. I will need to plan a day to do just that.
Blair witch:thumbsup:
Some of the best riding in the state! Glad you got to enjoy it all. Thanks for the posts, gets me motivated to get out there tonight after work, maybe not the entire section but Ranch to Blair Witch and CO trail will be a good time if there is no rain.
Just about my favorite ride around. Brings back lots of memories of riding that stuff as my after work rides for a few years. Thanks for the post.
That used to be my backyard, I rode back there every day for a few summers. Even commuted to work in breck sometimes on the CT. You guys did one of my favorite versions too. Next time, try the CT section backwards riding up from the ranch road. The down hill is even more fun that way IMHO.
dude, that looks like an amazing ride of good weather and very nice scenery!
I rode almost that exact loop earlier this season. That was fine trail, IMO.
If anyone is up to ride these trails, let me know!
