Please note: Although the RCA highly recommends Keystone Standard Basin for an epic alpine adventure, we do not manage this trail. This is a Revelstoke-area trail and is managed by Recreation Sites & Trails BC.
Keystone offers a spectacular ride through vibrant alpine meadows. The first kilometre through the forest is a grunt, but once into the alpine, your efforts are rewarded with stunning views of the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains. If you time it right, the wildflowers will be in full bloom.
The trail is an 11 kilometre out-and-back to a rustic cabin situated next to a beautiful alpine lake. While most of the trail is suitable for intermediate riders, it’s length, sustained climbs, and remoteness result in it being rated black. It is more technically challenging than Frisby Ridge.
This trail is also ascended by hikers so please respectful and slow down to yield.
To reach the trail from Revelstoke:
– Head north on Highway 23
– About 50 km from the Trans-Canada, turn right onto the Keystone Forest Service Road
– Continue up the road for 18 km to the parking lot
* Note: 4×4 is recommended for this logging road. Please remember that it is the responsibility of the driver to travel at speeds that reflect road conditions.
