Description: The very popular Keystone Cabin Trail. Originally built for backpacking back in the 70’s this trail has now become a bucket list trail for those coming to Revelstoke to sample some of our outstanding alpine mountain biking and trail running. Though it was not groomed for mountain biking specifically, like its counterpart the Frisby Ridge Trail, the trail suits itself very well for mountain biking with the exception of a few burly sections off the start and across scree slopes midway through the ride. Recently the ‘second half’ of the trail to Standard Peak itself has started to receive a lot more traffic as well. Recent work to clear the trail and increased traffic has beat the trail in again making it a fantastic extension to the already mind blowing trail.
Directions: Drive north of Revelstoke on Highway 23. About 8 km past the Mars Creek bridge turn onto the Keystone FSR. 16.2 km on this road will get you to the trailhead.
