Keystone Gorge

Often Overlooked, Serene Hike

Keystone Gorge is a great hike started from the Lawson Hill Area. Follow the trail next to the rushing San Miguel River and view bluffs, Wilson Peak and Illium. 

Distance: 2.5-mile loop
Difficulty: Easy
Time: Approx. 1 hour


Head West on the Galloping Goose trail and follow signs for the Keystone Gorge trail. You will cross the river on two footbridges covered in prayer flags. The trail continues next to the San Miguel River. You will eventually cross back across the river and arrive at a set of picnic tables. Bring a sandwich from Cindybread or Counter Culture and stop here to enjoy the sound of the rushing river. The trail then makes a quick steep jaunt through an aspen forest before reconnecting to the Galloping Goose trail.
