Keystone is known for its snowy ski slopes but it’s also gaining recognition for its fun in the sun summer activities! A perfect summer’s day is waiting for you at Keystone Resort, so take advantage of the last few weeks of summer with a trip to the mountains. Picture yourself waking up in the morning and starting your day along the beautiful winding paved bike path at Keystone. Rent your bikes from Mountain View Sports and ride from the River Run village to Lakeside Village for a mellow morning wake up with some incredible scenery. Then, grab the family and stop by the New Moon Cafe in River Run village to grab a hot cup of coffee and one of their delicious breakfast burritos.
After breakfast, stroll over to the gondola with some packed lunches and load the family up to take a scenic ride up to the mountain to Dercum Mountain. Stop at the top and take a memorable photo with your loved ones and stop at a bench to eat your packed lunch while taking in the 360 degree views! After lunch, start on your hike, we recommend the 3.5 mile Schoolmarm Hiking Trail. This family-friendly hike offers beautiful mountain vistas, a flat grassy path to walk on and plenty of bird-watching opportunities. End your hike all the way back down in River Run Village, get cleaned up and take the whole family out to dinner at Zuma Roadhouse. Zuma Roadhouse is known for it’s mountain-chic decor, their delicious high quality meats and well-composed dishes. My favorite is their Zuma Jam burger with the lemon-parm kale on the side. Get world-class fare without ever having to leave the village!
From there, go back to your SummitCove condo, put your swim-suits on and watch the sunset from the hot tub. There is nothing more relaxing than staring up and watching the stars emerge from the pink clouds over the mountains. Once you have had your fun in the hot tub or pool, take the family back inside for some board games and relaxation before bed! Stand out on the balcony and gaze at the stars before laying down to get rest for your next action-packed day.
