Visiting in September

September is a gorgeous time to visit. Don't forget your camera and a mask. There is a mask mandate in place in all indoor public spaces.

Know Before You Go

Summer Trails:

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 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 Aemono or Cindybread 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.
