Trail Information

Highlights

Keyser Creek would be a great place to camp during the season that is accessible to most vehicles but yet feels far from the city. Most campsites are near the river, and there are aspen forests that would be amazing during the fall when the leaves change colors. The abundance of trail spurs and recreational trails can keep you busy for a whole weekend outing. It could also be used as a scenic drive to connect you from Highway 40 to Highway 3. While in the area I saw deer and moose.

This is indeed a very easy trail/road. In fact, starting from the east side, I followed a giant charter tour bus for a few miles up until a ranch, just about where the road begins to narrow. Seems a little busier on the west side, with dispersed campers & OHVs. Stayed overnight at the Horseshoe Campground, which despite the adjacent road was quite peaceful.

Nice quiet ride. Can be done in any vehicle. We opted to do a few other loops that you can take off this trail. We will do this again in to see the Aspen in the fall.

The trail is pretty dry given the recent rain. There were only a few people on this trail, but I expect more will come during the summer months. There are plenty of dispersed camping near and away from the creek. This is not a technical trail, and can be driven by any car.
